KTBS-TV (Shreveport), December 5, 2007

An employee of Lowe’s home improvement center in Ruston who said he found a noose in his locker at work was arrested today on internal-theft charges.

Ruston police said they are still investigating the complaint about the noose. They would not say whether they believe it was a legitimate claim or one intended to deflect attention from the theft investigation that had targeted him.

Jonathan McZeal, 25, of Jennings was booked on felony theft charges. Police said McZeal worked as a cashier and the alleged theft of more than $500 involved making refund payments for merchandise that was never bought.
