Shoplifting suspect tased

BEAUMONT - If you were near the Dowlen Road HEB store around 7:30 p.m. Wednesday, you may have noticed a bit of police activity.  Multiple Beaumont police cars showed up, at the store after they say a man was seen trying to shoplift shrimp and cheese.

Officers had to use a stun gun to get the man to stop.  Emergency responders were called to help remove the taser barbs and to treat him for a scratch he received while scuffling with police.

The suspect's name has not been released.
