SAN DIEGO (CNS) - A 23-year-old man was jailed Wednesday for allegedly threatening the life of a store clerk while stealing a shopping cart full of food from an East County supermarket.

Robert Lee Titus Jr. of San Diego allegedly shoplifted a variety of merchandise from an Albertsons store on Fletcher Parkway in La Mesa on July 21, then threatened to shoot an employee who confronted him as he fled with the goods, according to police.

Detectives subsequently identified Titus as the suspected robber, and he was arrested at his home Wednesday morning, Lt. Dan Willis said.

Titus was being held in county jail on $100,000 bail. He is scheduled to be arraigned Friday.
