No bond for D.C. man after allegedly using pepper spray to steal shoes in Potomac Yard

A 24-year-old Washington, D.C., man is behind bars without bond after allegedly altering prices and assaulting a Rack Room Shoes store clerk with pepper spray and making off with stolen footwear.

Jamison McNeil is being held without bond after being arrested on the evening of Wednesday, August 3. At around 7:30 p.m., McNeil allegedly left the Rack Room Shoes in Potomac Yard (3551 Richmond Highway) and was recorded by a store clerk leaving the store with stolen shoes. McNeil allegedly sprayed a store clerk with pepper spray while making a getaway, according to a search warrant affidavit.

McNeil allegedly drove away from the scene in a blue Hyundai IONIQ with temporary Maryland tags. That same car was also reported leaving a Best Buy store, and then a Chipotle restaurant in the same shopping center after McNeil and several suspects allegedly walked out without paying for their food.

McNeil was pulled over and told police that all of the stolen property was located in the blue Hyundai, according to the search warrant affidavit. He was charged with shoplifting/altering price tags for more than $1,000 worth of stolen merchandise, conspiracy to commit concealment of merchandise and multiple counts of petit larceny.
