A man who told officers he was a “homeless broke man” was arrested twice in two days on a variety of theft and weapons violations.
Keith Edward Myren, 68, was arrested about 9:30 a.m. Aug. 3 after police received a call that he was pointing a rifle at someone near South Main Avenue and Alternate Highway 101, according to a probable cause declaration from the Warrenton Police Department.
Myren was arrested the following day on suspicion of pulling a knife on a Walmart employee and leaving the store with $1,000 worth of merchandise along with one of the company’s shopping carts. He had been released from jail the previous day.
The arrests stem from three days of problems attributed to Myren at various locations in Warrenton.
