A Utah shoplifter brought along his backpack with over a pound of pot inside Thursday (Feb. 11, 2016) while shoplifting sweatpants at a Macy’s store, authorities said.

Denzel Christopher Jones, 18, must have seemed really confident he would be able to get away with the theft at the department store in Orem, Utah.

A loss prevention officer caught Jones, but the teen broke free when officers arrived from the Orem Police Department. They eventually caught him and found the pot on him during a search of his backpack.

Jones reportedly told police he planned to sell the pound and a half of marijuana to pay his rent.
