The man who sprayed an unknown substance in a southwest valley Walmart while wearing a protective hazmat suit on Saturday night allegedly did it because he wanted to be famous on social media, according to his arrest report.
Aldo Gonzalez, 23, was arrested on charges of burglary and dispersing a hoax substance after police identified him as the suspect, according to the report.
Police said they got a call around 8:20 p.m. saying that a man had walked into the Walmart at 7200 Arroyo Crossing Way wearing a hazmat suit and was “spraying an unknown substance in the food aisle and throughout the store,” the report said. The caller said the man had left the store in a grey Ford sedan, and they gave police the license plate number. Source
