(Scroll down for video) Several shoplifters chose the wrong store when they were in the mood for some free stuff, a video uploaded to the Internet showed.

The video showed the altercation that unfolded in the parking lot of a shopping center in Saginaw, Michigan.

The one minute and 47 second long video that was recorded by a bystander, showed a pair of employees from Family Dollar, facing off with the shoplifters, who were already in their car ready to flee from the scene. The male worker with Febreze in one hand approached the car full of people.

At first, the employee was calm, but the confrontation quickly escalates into a shouting match with threats of violence. The employee sprayed Febreze into the passenger window.

It did not seem as if anyone was hurt, but one woman was seen rubbing her eyes saying: “I cannot see.” “Please know that the safety and security of our customers and team members is our first priority, and we are taking the situation seriously,” a spokesperson for Family Dollar said.

Saginaw Police said that they have no record of the incident.
