They say Justin Shuffle had stolen a 2010 Bobcat excavating machine from a shopping center and crashed through the front doors of the Target.

They say Shuffle stole a coat and gift cards before officers found him in the electronics section where he was arrested.

Shuffle, 33 of Deer Park, is charged with burglary and Grand larceny.  It was unclear if he had a lawyer who could speak on his behalf.
