Hollis Blaine Sartin, 40, of Hopkins County has been arrested Saturday morning after he carried a BB gun in the Wal-Mart in Sulphur Springs.

He forced the store to be evacuated Friday night after he entered the store wearing a hoodie and putting a gun into his pocket following the theft of a truck from a Hope, Arkansas auto dealer. The local Special Response Team searched the store for the man. Store surveillance video showed the suspect exiting the store and escaping down State Highway 11.
