Police carried a shirtless and shoeless suspect out of Salvation Army store in central Pennsylvania after a crime spree they say included a gunpoint kidnapping, attempted carjacking and a hostage standoff.
Officers hauled Joseph Wade Aldinger from the Harrisburg store around 4:30 p.m. Thursday, more than nine hours after they say the spree began with a gunpoint kidnapping in a neighboring community.
Police say he fled to the store minutes earlier after faking surrender at the home where four people were held hostage. They were released unharmed.
