[ARCHIVED] Disorderly Suspect Arrested Following Incident at Walmart

On July 14, at approximately 5:38 p.m., police responded to Walmart, 4550 West 11th Avenue regarding a disorderly shoplifter after an EPD detective, who was at the location investigating an unrelated incident, observed a male subject push his way past employees and exit the store. The detective continued to observe the suspect in the bank parking lot on the corner of West 11th Avenue and Commerce Street with a pile of items in new packaging scattered around him. Patrol arrived at the location and contacted the suspect, Devin Michael Kneeland, age 35, of Eugene, and he ran. Kneeland continued to disregard direction from the patrol officer and progressed toward the gas station, an area with several people, and was eventually taken into custody with the use of a taser. Police found several items from Walmart that had been discarded in the area where Kneeland was initially contacted. He was arrested and transported to the Lane County Jail for Robbery in the Third Degree, Escape in the Third Degree and Interfering With A Police Officer.
