Police say thieves put video games in gym bag inside cart


CLAY COUNTY, Fla. – Two men and a woman are being sought in connection with orchestrating a Walmart shoplifting scheme to steal video games from the store.

It happened Tuesday at the Walmart at 1580 Branan Field Road.

According to authorities, a man and woman entered the store and proceeded to the electronics section, where they took about six video games worth about $360 from the rack and placed them in a gym bag in a shopping cart.

Deputies said the thieves pushed the cart to a produce section, where they left it before walking out of the store. Next, deputies said a second man walked in and pushed the shopping cart to the deli section, where he removed the bag from the cart, left the cart in the deli section, and walked out of the store with the bag.

Authorities said all three were seen on surveillance video in a newer-model, silver four-door sedan.

Deputies described the first thief as a black man wearing a red T-shirt and black basketball shorts. The second was a black woman wearing a red Raines High School basketball sweatshirt and black pants, deputies said. The last thief to enter the store was described as a black man wearing a white T-shirt and black shorts.

Anyone with information about the thieves' identities is asked to call the Clay County Sheriff's Office.
