West Whiteland police were called to the scene of the Exton Wal-Mart Wednesday evening after a 300-pound man entered the store fully nude, according to police reports.
Police say Verdon Lamont Taylor, 32, of Downingtown, parked his vehicle outside the store and then stripped off all his clothing before he entered the store and approached the customer service desk. The man then allegedly stole a pair of socks and put them on before walking deeper into the store.
Taylor is described as 6 feet, 4 inches tall and weighing approximately 300 pounds. He allegedly refused to comply with police officer’s orders and was subsequently tasered, police say.
Surveillance video reportedly shows customers attempting to avoid the nude Taylor as he walked through the store before until he was confronted by police.
Taylor was arrested and arraigned on charges of indecent exposure, aggravated assault, retail theft and related charges. Court records show he has prior convictions for disorderly conduct and public urination and defecation.
He was transported to Chester County Prison after failing to post $50,000 cash bail. A preliminary hearing has been set for March 21.
