PPD: Walmart robber chokes employee

Headline Goes Here

Keith Jackson

PASADENA, Texas - A shoplifting suspect choked a security employee who tried to stop him, investigators said.

Keith Jackson, 32, has been charged with robbery.

Pasadena police said Jackson walked out of a Walmart store in the 1100 block of Shaver on Tuesday. He had two 32-inch TVs, which he didn't pay for, detectives said.

A loss-prevention officer followed Jackson, stopped him and called police.

Officers went to the store and looked at surveillance video. The video showed Jackson walking out of the store earlier with another 32-inch TV and a DVD player, police said.

When Jackson realized he had been caught, he fought with a security guard.

Jackson is being held in the Harris County Jail with bond set at $20,000.
