BUCKEYE, Ariz. (AP) - Buckeye police say three people were arrested after a stun gun was used on a home-improvement store employee who tried to prevent the theft of painting equipment.

Police say the robbery occurred Wednesday afternoon at a Lowe’s Home Improvement store where the worker confronted three people taking two sprayers.

Store employees notified other Lowe’s stores of the theft, and police say workers at a store in Phoenix contacted police Wednesday evening when the suspects tried to return one of the sprayers for a refund.

Police say responding Phoenix police officers arrested the three suspects. They were jailed on suspicion of numerous felony charges.
