Walmart Crime Spree in Virginia
Police say a man, caught on store surveillance video, is responsible for what they believe is a series of robberies at local Walmart locations. According to local TV station WSLS, the man was used a shopping cart and strategically placed clothes in order to steal 15 laptops from a store in Salem, Va., and pushed the products out of the store through the side of its lawn and garden section. Police also told the station that the same man robbed the same store another day, and even hit another in a different Virginia county.
