A Cuyahoga County man faces charges after Boardman police said he stole a Cleveland Browns t-shirt, and a pack of lighters from the Giant Eagle on Doral Drive, while carrying a BB gun some employees and customers thought was real.

The suspect, 37-year-old Nicholas Spychola, and another man, 31-year-old Anthony Page, were arrested when police managed to stop the WRTA bus they had boarded after the incident just after 1:00 pm last Friday.

A Giant Eagle employee told police the men had been in the store for several hours and she saw Spychola stuff something down the front of his pants after seeing him holding the Browns t-shirt.

According to a police report, another employee yelled out after noticing the outline of a gun in Spychola's waistband as he was leaving the store. Spychola removed it to show the stores security guard it was only a BB gun, causing employees and customers to flee the area. 

The guard did not detain Spychola, and he and Page quickly boarded a WRTA bus after leaving the store. 

After the bus was stopped and the men were detained Spychola admitted to taking the Browns t-shirt and a pack of lighters, and told police Page had not been involved. 

Spychola was arrested for inducing panic and theft and was taken to the Mahoning County Jail. His bond was set at $2,500, and he is scheduled to appear in court on June 11.

Page was found to have a felony drug possession warrant out of Cuyahoga County and was also arrested.
