Walmart Theft Op Ends When Suspect Tries To Steal Pie

EATON, OhioóPolice recently arrested seven people in what officers say was a major theft operation taking place at numerous Walmart stores.
Police said one member of the theft operation went into a Walmart, loaded a shopping cart with big-ticket items, paid for them and wheeled them out of the store.
The shopper then handed the receipt for the paid items to another member who loaded a shopping cart with those same items and walked out the door without paying, showing door security the receipt from the previous memberís purchase, police said.
Next, the crew would go to another Walmart store and return one of the sets of stolen items for a gift card. That gift card was used to purchase another cartload of items that was returned for cash, according to police.
Police found out about the operation when one of the members became hungry and attempted to shoplift an apple pie. DOH!!
