Schuyler Stewart Zwar has been arrested for entering a Billings, Montana, Walmart and going to the sporting goods area where, after asking to see some guns for sale, threatened an employee with a knife, then later returned and smashed a display case, stealing a Bushmaster model M-16, .223-caliber semi-automatic rifle, then fleeing.
From an article:
Zwar is seen on store security video pushing a large trash can into the store then walking to the sporting goods area.
Documents state Zwar looked at firearms in a display case then asked an employee for assistance to open the case.
After the employee took five firearms out of the case at 12:22 p.m. Zwar grabbed the employee.
The clerk said Zwar held a knife to his throat and tried to cut him several times, documents state.
The clerk told authorities he was calmly able to get away and Zwar left the sporting goods area.
Zwar returned less than a minute later swinging a large yellow crow bar, documents state.
Zwar "smashed the glass out of the display case and removed one firearm," documents state.
Walmart staff determined the firearm was a Bushmaster model M-16, .223-caliber semi-automatic rifle.
Zwar left the store at 12:24 p.m. using the automotive entrance and pulling a large black trash can, documents state.
Witnesses told officers the man left in a white vehicle, similar to a Subaru, with Washington state plates. ....
"The vehicle then led troopers on a pursuit for approximately 20 miles," the document states. "The vehicle was ultimately stopped after using spike strips to disable the tires and the driver identified as Schuyler Stewart Zwar."
After Zwar was taken into custody for the traffic offenses, troopers recovered a receipt for a crowbar that was purchased at a hardware store in Gillette, Wyo. earlier that day.
A search warrant was served on the vehicle and the rifle from Walmart, three boxes of ammunition, and the crowbar were recovered.Walmart. Save money. Die faster.
