WESTBOROUGH – A Worcester man is facing charges after he allegedly tried to steal items from the Tractor Supply Store on Milk Street.

Evan Charbonneau was charged with shoplifting by concealment.

The reporting party called the Westborough Police Department at 7.37pm yesterday and told officers the man was in possession of a BB gun and several knives as he attempted to leave the store, according to a press release of the department.

In a Facebook postWestborough officers said police arrived at the scene less than a minute after receiving the call and establishing a perimeter.

Westborough and Northborough officers reportedly observed a man, who matched the description of the witnesses, exit the store.

Police confronted Charbonneau and took him into custody without incident. Officers later said they found the BB gun, several knives and a hatchet on Charbonneau.

“There were no injuries to any of the parties involved and no danger to the public,” the department wrote on social media.

The Westborough Police Department said Charbonneau was being held on bail. He is due to appear in Westborough District Court on Monday morning.
