Christopher Lynn Goins, identified as the suspect who stole the pickup truck last week in the Walmart parking lot at 490 Greenway View Dr., was taken into custody on Thursday.
In that case, the owner of the vehicle inadvertently laid down his keys inside the Walmart, and police said the 25-year-old Goins picked them up and used the remote to locate the vehicle.
Police said the owner went outside as the vehicle was being driven off and he fired a shot at the thief.
Officers with the Chattanooga Police Department’s Fugitive Unit, K-9 Unit, Patrol Division, and the U.S. Marshals Service arrested Goins in Lookout Valley.
He has been charged with theft over $10,000 and parole violation.
