Police had to chase after a man they say he stole some items from a store Thursday afternoon.

The incident began when police say the man stole a pair of shoes from Kohl's on West Maple Road.

Wearing the stolen shoes, the man ran toward the Champions Run Golf Course when an employee mentioned calling police.

Someone else called police saying they saw him run up a pine tree near hole 10.

Officers caught the man, but it's too early to know if he was booked or just cited and released.
