A Gulfport officer saw Hall in the area of 15Th Ave S and 49th Street S and recognized him as the possible suspect in the series of retail thefts that were caught on surveillance video. While officers were attempting to ID Hall, he fled into St Petersburg. Officers chased him on foot and he was apprehended just blocks
Further investigations are ongoing and additional retail theft charges could be applied.
