A K-Mart shopper was arrested Saturday after he was seen allegedly concealing 11 packs of golf gloves.

The 82-year-old man was read his Miranda rights and then told a Largo Police officer he was "taking the gloves for a golf tournament in Dunedin. He was going to give them as prizes," according to the report.

The total retail value of the merchandise recovered was $138.99, according to police.

Saylor was arrested on the charge of petty theft. Saylor is in Pinellas County Jail on $500 bond. He has been convicted on charges of theft in January, 2012 and in 2009, according to the report.
