MINOT, N.D. — A Minot man has been sentenced to 120 days in jail after pleading guilty to shoplifting from a Hobby Lobby.

The Minot Daily News reports 22-year-old Dustin Finely Johnson was sentenced Thursday in North Central District Court.

Police say store officials reported a male shoplifter on Jan. 3. When officers arrived at the store they discovered a shopping cart with about $4,000 worth of merchandise in the parking lot.

Authorities say Johnson attempted to flee with the shopping cart, which became stuck in the snow and overturned.

Police say they found Johnson’s wallet at the scene containing identification. Officers then went to his home and arrested him.
