Man who drove car through Hinesville Kroger ID'ed

HINESVILLE, GA (WTOC) -

Investigators have identified the man who drove through the Hinesville Kroger on Wednesday evening. They charged 27 year old Jenorris McKenzie with reckless conduct, criminal trespass, and criminal damage to property.

The car crashed through the two sets of electronic doors, drove between two rows of electronic registers and down aisle 8. Witness Meagan Dasher heard and saw the whole ordeal.

"He drove all the way down the aisle. I heard some action down there and as they told us to get out of the store, he started backing up and coming back up the aisle," she explained.

He pulled out of the same door and parked out front. Several witnesses detained him until police got there moments later.

"We hear about this more and more - people driving through the front of stores - and I'm not sure why," noted customer Marion Stevens.

A store employee said the man told him to evacuate the store, and short after, the man drove his car through the front of the store and all the way down one of the aisles.

Hinesville police detective Doug Sneider told WTOC a store employee had called police earlier in the day becaus of an argument with McKenzie. Officers told McKenzie he could not come back to the store, but allowed him to leave.

He remains in jail, awaiting a bond hearing in magistrate court Friday. None of the employees or customers were hurt. Workers cleaned up the mess overnight and repairs to the damaged doors began Thursday.
