A Putnam County teenager is facing charges of battery and theft after a 12:15 p.m. incident Wednesday at the Greencastle Walmart store on Indianapolis Road.
Ryan Gardner, 18, Reelsville, was lodged in the Putnam County Jail Wednesday afternoon after county deputies apprehended him coming out of a cornfield near Ballard Lane and State Road 240.
Officer Ed Wilson investigated the incident for GPD.
Gardner reportedly took a belt from the men's department, put it on in a dressing room and tried to leave the store.
When he was reportedly confronted by a Walmart official, he allegedly shoved her and ran out, fleeing into the cornfield east of the store.
