Police: Phony security guard arrested in flat-screen thefts

A man who dressed up as a security guard and shoplifted two flat-screen TVs from the Target in Canton has been arrested, Canton Police said Monday.

Police arrested Ronald Mark Clark, 48, of Woodstock at his home on Wednesday. There they found two stolen 19-inch, Polaroid flat-screens and the uniform Clark wore during the Nov. 17 theft, police said.

TV viewers helped police identify Clark after a Dec. 31 broadcast about the incident, police said.

Clark was charged with theft by shoplifting and taken to the Cherokee County Jail.
