Two men disguised as Walmart employees attempted to steal several thousand dollars worth of merchandise from a metro Atlanta store, according to Peachtree City police.
About 2:46 p.m. June 29, the men entered the back of the retailer’s location in the 2700 block of Ga. 54 and began loading pallet carts, police spokeswoman Lt. Odilia Bergh said Friday.
The article goes on to state the following:
The duo had collected $3,268 worth of flat screen TVs, computers and other electronics when actual store employees confronted them, Bergh said.
The men claimed they were moving the items to another Walmart store, according to police.
More employees armed with cameras confronted the men, causing them to abandon the goods and drive away in a U-Haul truck parked outside the store, Bergh said.
The men did not succeed in loading any merchandise into the U-Haul before escaping.
The Peachtree City Police Department posted the following report on the incident on their Facebook page:
Back to work… So check these guys out! They put on fake Wal-mart vests, walked in the back of the store and started loading up pallet carts to move their merchandise. When confronted by other employees who didn’t recognize them, they gave some bubble gum story about picking up merchandise for another store. Finally, when confronted with cameras and more employees they left quickly in their U-Haul. SHARE THIS ONE FOR SURE!
