SEATTLE - Surveillance video obtained by Channel 2's Cox Media Group sister station KIRO 7 shows a 41-year-old man going on a wild 15-minute destructive #shoplifting
spree where he #terrorized
both Target workers and customers, and he returned to steal from the store twice more over the next three days before he was arrested by Seattle police.
According to King County Court documents, Jason L. Lewis entered the downtown store on Aug. 17.
He confronted workers, headbutted a Target sales associate, destroyed displays, tried to kick open a locked display containing Apple iPads, and threw the heavy display down a store escalator while customers scrambled to get out of the way.
According to court documents, Target employees were told to get out of Lewis' way for their own safety, leaving him alone behind a store counter.
Surveillance shows Lewis using one display as a weapon, swinging it like a sledgehammer trying to break a secure case loaded with Ipad and Apple watches.
When that didn't work, Lewis repeatedly kicked the case.
Desperate to break it open, Lewis destroyed a video monitor and flipped the display case it onto the Target floor and shoved it down the aisles of the store.
At one point, Lewis is seen shoving the heavy Apple display down an escalator, while people were riding on it.
