51 year old Gale Thomas Bullman attempts retail theft at Lowes, busted by West Manchester Township Police

York, PA

On September 9, 2019, at approximately 2:30PM, West Manchester Township Police Department (WMTPD) responded to Lowe’s, 1175 Carlisle Road, for a retail theft in progress. While the Officer was en route to the location, he was advised that the male suspect, later identified as Gale Thomas Bullman, left the store and entered a white Dodge Charger behind the Ross clothing store. The witness, a Lowe’s Loss Prevention Officer (LPO), advised that the car was last seen north on Carlisle Road and then east on Route 30.

A WMTPD sergeant located the vehicle, a white 2019 Dodge Charger and conducted a traffic stop on Route 30 and Kenneth Road, with the vehicle stopping behind the Lyndon Diner. Police say the first responding officer immediately responded to the location and assisted the Sergeant. Police say they observed a white male sitting in the right rear passenger seat and wearing a blue hat, which was the same as the suspect. Officers requested that the rear passenger, Bullman, step out of the vehicle and he was placed in handcuffs.

According to police Bullman kept saying it was his fault and no one else in the vehicle is to blame. Police brought the Lowe’s LPO to the scene. The Lowe’s LPO positively identified Bullman as the subject who stole items from the Lowe’s. Bullman was placed back in the patrol vehicle.  Bullman left the store with 4 small rolls of PHN wire ($82.97 each), 1 large role of PHN wire ($465.00), outlet boxes ($6.72) and paper towels ($7.98), which had a total of $811.58. Based on the above information, Gale Bullman was arraigned on 1 count of Retail Theft, Misdemeanor 1 on September 9, 2019.
