A man wanted for aggravated robbery was arrested at the Rockwood Walmart on Sunday.

Police were dispatched to the store in reference to a man at the service desk that was possibly trying to return stolen merchandise.

“I made contact with the male suspect that I was given a description of, and who Walmart employees pointed out to me,” the police report said. “When asked for identification, I was given a Texas identification card.”

The report said the person pictured in the Texas ID card was not the suspect.

After some back-and-forth, the officer positively identified the suspect as Christopher Dewayne Powers.

According to the report, Powers had three warrants out for his arrest, including one for aggravated robbery.

He was arrested and taken to the Roane County Jail.

He was also charged with criminal impersonation, possession of hydrocodone and theft.
