Gun trumps knife in standoff at Wadena store

Email

An alleged shoplifter pulled a knife on a Wadena store employee on May 27, but when another employee grabbed a gun, the man gave up his knife.

According to court documents, Gerald Allan Demarre, 44, of Staples, entered Fleet Supply in Wadena and a store employee confronted him and his girlfriend about taking a pair of boots without paying a few days before. Demarre allegedly told his girlfriend to "go get the gun" when the argument became heated.
