A traffic stop leads to an arrest in a shoplifting case.
A Salina traffic officer attempted to pull over a car in the 900 block of Manchester Wednesday afternoon just before 1pm for a tag violation.
The suspect fled and was arrested after a short foot-chase.
Further investigation led to the arrest of 33-year-old Christopher Behnke of Salina on a charge of felony theft.
Police say he was wanted for shoplifting at Target in May and July of this year.
Police have also connected him to the theft of a tablet computer from Wal-Mart this week.
Two other suspects are still being sought in the case.
