Shahzad Iqbal - Jailed After Threatening Walmart Employee With BB Gun When He Couldn't Returned A Used Tablet Without Receipt

Laurel, Md. (The Weekly Vice) - Shahzad Iqbal, a 41-year-old Maryland man, was jailed Monday after he allegedly threatened a Walmart employee with a BB gun when he was told he could not return an item without a receipt.

According to police, the mayhem started Monday at about 11 p.m. when Iqbal walked into a Laural Walmart, approached the customer service counter and attempted to "return" a used electronic tablet device.

Investigators say a woman working at the customer service counter asked to see a purchase receipt, however Iqbal was unable to provide one. He then removed a pair of headphones from his head and demanded cash in return for them as well.

When the employee informed Iqbal that no items could be returned without a receipt, he reportedly became angry.  That's when he allegedly placed a backpack on the counter, removed what appeared to be a machine gun and pointed it at the employee.

When the employee screamed, Iqbal reportedly fled the scene. He was located a short time later a short distance from the store.

The gun was located in Iqbal's backpack and was later identified as a CO2 powered BB gun.

He was booked into jail and charged with attempted robbery, attempted first-degree assault and possession of a controlled dangerous substance.
