A $10,000 bond was set Monday for a man who allegedly ran from the WalMart Supercenter on Friday after striking a store employee who was trying to stop him for shoplifting.
Pine Bluff District Judge John Kearney set the bond after ruling that prosecutors had probable cause to charge Dalton Fulmer, 22, with robbery.
Deputy Prosecutor Maxie Kizer said a store security officer stopped Fulmer at the door after seeing him take an item without paying for it, and Fulmer allegedly struck the security officer in the face before running toward the highway.
Detective Marsha Oliver said in a probable-cause affidavit that Fulmer was stopped as he tried to run north across Interstate 530.
He allegedly tried to take a stereo amplifier valued at approximately $150.
In addition to setting the bond, Kearney ordered Fulmer to have no contact with the store security officer, and to stay out of WalMart until the case is settled.
The Public Defender’s Office was appointed to represent Fulmer, and he was told to come back to court May 20.
