PHOENIX (3TV/CBS 5) -

Quicksand, a New York post-hardcore band, played a show at Crescent Ballroom Tuesday night without their guitarist and members joked they couldn't find him. Well, he was in jail for alleged shoplifting.

Thomas Capone was arrested Tuesday afternoon outside the CVS store at Central Avenue and Jefferson Street

Court documents said the 47-year-old was spotted putting 43 items into his backpack and his shorts pockets just before 4:30 p.m. CVS staff told an off-duty officer, who then tried to stop Capone outside the store but he reportedly refused. The officer grabbed Capone's arm, but he tried to get away from the officer. The officer then took Capone to the ground. 

Police said Capone resisted arrest and injured the officer, who received a cut on his right elbow.

Court documents said Capone admitted to the crimes.

He was booked on shoplifting and resisting arrest charges.

Capone was released on his own recognizance.
