Michael A. Fisher, 28, of West Liberty, was charged with felony theft, falsification, resisting arrest, possession of drugs and illegal conveyance of drugs into a detention facility.

They were confronted in Wal-Mart, 2281 S. Main St., around 6:30 a.m. after store personnel observed them cutting items out of packages and removing security wraps.
