Store security said the man threw the mask on the floor when he was asked to remove it, and then he walked to the back of the store with another man.

Officers located the two men a short time later and immediately recognized one of them as Ricky A. Schoonover, 29, of Columbus, who had a warrant for his arrest. Schoonover was taken into custody and officers said they located a small amount of marijuana and methamphetamine in one of his pants pockets.
