Shoplifters threaten Walmart employee with gun in Florida

Occurred January 14, 2014.

Two men were witnessed shoplifting remote control helicopters at a Walmart store in Fleming Island, Florida.  When a loss-prevention employee confronted the men, they pulled a pistol on the worker, threatening to shoot him, and then fled.  The men were later arrested.

From an article with images of the two suspects:
On January 14 Dennis Holcomb, 31, and 40-year-old Michael Robinson allegedly stole three remote control helicopters from a Wal-Mart in Fleming Island.
After attempting to leave the store through the garden department, the suspects were approached by a loss prevention officer in reference to the stolen merchandise.
Once the loss prevention officer identified himself, he was allegedly pushed by Robinson who also pulled out a pistol, according to a release from the CCSO. The loss prevention officer retreated and informed everyone that the suspect had a gun.
Both suspects fled the Wal-Mart in a gold four-door sedan.
On January 29, the same suspects allegedly stole five items valued at $54.73 from the Wal-Mart in Orange Park. Holcomb and Robinson fled the scene and were later found near the intersection of Parkwood and Blanding Blvd.
