They put about $462 worth of items into a duffel bag, left the store without paying and attempted to leave in a 2013 Nissan Altima, police said.

The two were arrested in the parking lot, and subsequent investigation revealed each man was in possession of a gravity knife, which releases a blade with a spinning motion.
