Officers contacted Tejo Adams Pack, 38, just outside the store parking lot. Pack reportedly had the crowbar and hammer in his hands and told police he had stolen the items to project himself from a “dark aura.” Pack also reportedly said he put marijuana extract into his pre-workout before going on a bike ride, which he believes caused the “dark aura.” Police cited Pack for third-degree theft.
