Man arrested in Norfolk after police arrest him for theft, possession of meth

The Norfolk Police were dispatched to Walmart in Norfolk for a shoplifting call at 1:15 a.m. Tuesday. 

Police said the suspects loaded an entire grocery cart of stolen items into a vehicle and fled the area. 

Police found the vehicle and tried to stop it. 

The person driving the vehicle refused to stop and fled south of Norfolk. 

Madison County Deputies assisted in attempting to stop the vehicle and used "stop sticks" to immobilize the vehicle. 

The driver fled the scene but officers arrested a passenger who provided a false name. 

The passenger has been identified as 42-year-old Thomas E. Scdoris who police said is homeless in Norfolk. 

Scdoris was in possession of the stolen property and was placed under arrest.

He was searched and officers located a pipe with methamphetamine residue on it.

Scdoris was booked into the Norfolk City Jail for possession of methamphetamine, criminal impersonation, and theft. 

He also had an active warrant from Lancaster County for escape from a correctional facility.

Scdoris was later transported to the Madison County Jail.
