LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Louisville Metro Police say a shoplifting suspect threatened a Walmart employee just before he was taken into custody.

The alleged incident took place at the Walmart on Standiford Plaza Drive, near Preston Hwy., on Tuesday, Dec. 10, just before 3 p.m.

Police say 52-year-old Timothy W. Byrd, Sr. placed Walmart merchandise in a grocery cart and tried to leave without paying for it. When police stopped Byrd and searched him, they allegedly found three social security cards in his possession that didn't belong to him.

Byrd told police that the cards belonged to people who had lived with him, but moved out of the county, according to the arrest report.

As he was being arrested, Byrd allegedly threatened a female Walmart employee, telling her to, "take these cuffs off me and see what happens," according to the arrest report.

Byrd was taken into custody and charged with theft, terroristic threatening and identity theft.
