A woman was arrested on suspicion of shoplifting on Tuesday afternoon, following an incident in Great Yarmouth's Gapton Hall retail park.
Police were called by staff at M&S, who reported that a suspected shoplifter had been apprehended and detained near the shop at around 1.30pm.
A woman in her 30s was then arrested and taken to Great Yarmouth PIC for further questioning, with the suspected stolen items seized by police.
A witness said they had seen police officers pulling items of clothing and food out of a large duffel bag the woman had been carrying.
Another said they saw the woman 'wrestled to the ground on the side of the road'.
The M&S store relocated to the Gapton Hall retail park in 2015 after moving from King Street in the town centre after 104 years.
