Shoplifting suspect accused of throwing item at clerk

MOULTRIE — A man, who threw an energy shot bottle he is accused of stealing at a convenience store employee, faces shoplifting charges in connection with the theft, Moultrie Police Department reports said.

Employees at Murphy’s Express, 505 S. Veterans Parkway, told police that a customer reported that Gary Steven Hiers concealed an energy shot in his jacket while purchasing cigarettes at the store at 4:36 p.m. Monday.

An employee followed Hiers outside and he told her that he had paid for it, police reports stated. When the employee asked him to come back inside so she could check receipts, she told police, Hiers threw the bottle at her but it did not strike her.

Officers were directed to a nearby residence where Hiers lives and a family member gave permission to go inside to look for him, police reports said. As officers searched the residence, Hiers came inside from a back door and began yelling and cursing at them, the reports said.

He was taken into custody and identified by store employees as the person who took the item, police reports said.

Hiers, 49, 51 Kingwood Gardens, was charged with shoplifting and disorderly conduct.
