As Paim ran from the cart, the couple started yelling. Other patrons then chased the suspect through the store, Murdoch said.

Near the Garden Center of the store, a patron tackled Paim and held him down until deputies arrived at the scene, Murdoch said.

Paim was arrested and then booked into the El Dorado County Jail.
