An unidentified man and woman, both 18-years-old, were arrested by the Anaheim police after they allegedly stole a shopping cart full of items from a Big Lots store in Anaheim Hills and flashed a gun at an employee.

Anaheim police officers responded to the store, which is located at 6336 E Santa Ana Canyon Rd., near Fairmont Boulevard and Santa Ana Canyon Road, just after 10 a.m.

The suspects brazenly walked past the store’s register with a cart full of tools and other merchandise and did not try to pay for the merchandise. When a store employee intervened the male suspect responded by flashing a handgun that was tucked in his waistband. The store employee wisely backed off and called the police.

The responding police officers put the area on a lockdown and the police slowly shrank the perimeter as they searched for the thieving couple.

The police officers finally found the suspects as they were hiding under a dumpster. behind a nearby restaurant.

The suspects were arrested shortly after 1 p.m. and the police officers also found a replica handgun.

No one was injured, according to the Anaheim police.
