A witness saw Garrett enter the restricted area and immediately called police, the report said.

Garrett told officers during questioning that he noticed his luggage zipper was open and a pair of shoes estimated to be worth $1,000 was missing, the report said.

He also told officers that he noticed an employee coming through the carousel door after the carousel stopped, which is when he jumped over the carousel.

“What you did was a big, big thing,” said one of the officers.

“I’m not trying to break the law,” Garrett replied.

The exchange was caught on the officer’s bodycam video, provided by the Cleveland Police Department:
