Helena man held on multiple charges after attempted Super 1 theft

A man is facing numerous charges after police say he tried to take a cart full of items from a grocery store and hit an employee.

Todd Rude reportedly tried to leave Super 1 in the wee hours of Saturday morning and shoved an employee into a car when they confronted him.

Police arrested him at a nearby motel with methamphetamine on him.  Rude made a court appearance yesterday on robbery, obstructing a peace officer and criminal possession of methamphetamine charges.
