Posted: Updated:

A group of good Samaritans and a determined store manager captured a South Georgia man wanted in several counties.     

Albany Police say 26-year-old Justin Norris was caught shoplifting Tuesday afternoon by the manager of the Dollar General on North Slappey.     

Norris ran out of the store, and the manager jumped in her car and chased him.      

Police say a group of people at 9th and Harding, alerted by the pursuing manager, tackled Norris and pinned him to the ground until police arrived.     

Norris was wanted in Dougherty County on a car theft charge and in Worth County for theft.
