A Volusia County man has been arrested after deputies say he was caught trying to steal condoms and lubricant from a Publix in Deltona on Thursday.

Jesus Maldonado, 22, has been charged with retail theft after a Publix loss prevention agent reported he hid a package of Magnum condoms and KY personal lubricant in his vest pocket, left the store and got on his bicycle, according to the report.

The loss prevention officer confronted Maldonado in the parking lot and brought him into the store until deputies arrived.

The items stolen were worth approximately $25, according to the report.

Maldonado was taken to Volusia County jail.
