MACON, Ga. -- A man was arrested on Tuesday after allegedly stealing beer from a convenience store that he had already been banned from.

According to a Bibb County Sheriff's Office incident report, an employee of the Marathon on Walnut Street in Macon told authorities that someone she described as a tall black man dressed as a woman with a wig on stole a 24 oz beer from the store after the employee told him to leave.

The man, identified as Calandra Carmichael, was taken into custody at the intersection of Cherry Street and Third Street in downtown Macon. During a search, an unopened 24 oz beer fell out of his purse.

When investigators ran Carmichael through their system, they found that he had a valid Bibb County Sheriff's Office warrant for theft by shoplifting and a warrant for violation of probation.

The incident report states that a criminal history report on Carmichael showed that he had at least four theft by shoplifting convictions in the past three years, making the incident at the Marathon a felony theft by shoplifting charge.

After being taken to the Bibb County Law Enforcement Center, Carmichael became "irate," telling deputies that he wished he could kill them and that he should have killed them, according to the incident report.

Carmichael was charged with felony theft by shoplifting, terroristic threats on a law enforcement officer, his outstanding warrants and criminal trespass because he was banned from the Marathon on Walnut Street at the time that he allegedly stole the beer.
