Caught next to G-Spot
He was observed running down the Bruce Highway about 5.30pm and disappearing down an easement, with the security guard in hot pursuit.
He then re-appeared near Hungry Jacks and again crossed the busy highway, but this time without the shopping trolley, just a backpack.
The security guard then cornered him in the vacant lot between Ray White Rural and the G-Spot until police arrived.
The man was given a notice to appear in Gympie Magistrates Court.
