Many Police Department is looking to press charges against anyone who left the Many Walmart during the EBT glitch with carts full of food without stopping at the checkout counter.
We had people actually walking out of the store, apparently, without even going through the checkout line, explained Many Police Detective JoAnn Carter. Thats called shoplifting, isnt it?
The Many Police Department is reviewing the surveillance video with Walmart to identify who will be facing charges of shoplifting.
Walmart actually has a person who sits and thats what she does with the loss and prevention, Carter explained to 710 KEEL. You walk in a Walmart store and you are tracked throughout the store, everything you do.
Carter say the video makes their case very clear.
Video is going to show what their intent was to do, said Carter. If you go into a grocery store and you fill the buggies full of groceries and you go out the door and dont even attempt to go to the cashier to pay for it, that pretty much shows what your intent was.
When the photos are ready, the Many Police Department will be putting them on their Facebook page for the public to help identify who the suspects are.
In our little small town of Many, people are nice enough and care enough that they call in and tell us who these people are, Carter added.
Detective Carter also told 710 KEEL she would like to see an investigation done into the entire EBT glitch and all the feeding frenzies at Walmarts all across the region.
I actually think the taxpayers who support this system have the right to know exactly what happened, the magnitude of what happened, said Detective Carter. I just wished people cared enough to check into it.
Many police pursue thefts in wake of EBT glitch
Photos of theft suspects to be posted on MPD Facebook page
I will believe it when I see it.
Photos on Facebook.... the digital version of heads on pikes?
BTW whatever happened to that FReeper ‘headsonpikes’??
I was wondering how they’d avoid the obvious.
They’ll post the pics of the 4 white people involved.
Well great for Wal-Mart but how about the faces of the people who used the EBT card to commit fraud against the American Taxpayer?
Most, albeit not all, of the items sitting in the carts could have been returned to the shelves.
The real criminals are those who purchased more than they qualified for and stole from us.
Looks like it wasn’t just the PhilMiss walmart that was just plain old looted without any pretense of checking out at the register.
Wonder how many walmarts were looted.
Looks like a 9 year old wrote this... This happened in LA?
He’s still around, occasionally pings me for the Canada list.
Famous People of Wal-mart!
Welfare policy: taking food without paying for it with the government's help.
Walmart has security guards and locks on its doors.
Walmart should employ both to avoid such situations.
Okay, I haven’t seen his handle around for a while
47.42% African American, according to the Wikipedia article.
Still here, posted yesterday.
‘Many’ is a town/city in Louisiana.
So all the other EBT leeches can "LIKE" them and get pointers?
“Look ma! I’m famous!!!”
How about putting the pictures on Walmart’s front door and calling the cops when the persons try coming back in.
Walmart employees get fired if they confront a shoplifter. They’d rather turn a blind eye and pass the cost onto their honest customers. A neighbor told of how they watched a big screen tv walk out of the store and all they could do was call the cops after the vehicle was off the parking lot. That was the only time they’d ever been allowed to do anything on a shoplifting. I’ve heard such stories from 5 different stores located in different cities.
5 minutes after they are posted there will be cries of racism and they will be taken down.
Know WHY they’re doing this? Cuz WalMart owns very good info regarding the future and THEY KNOW such conditions will recur, probably within one year.
Maybe they can find or fake some pics of white shoplifters and only post those.
Must be different rules in different areas. Our local Walmart’s LP people regularly duke it out with fleeing shoplifters.
“Dat ain’ me.”
Good. They’ll bitch anyway.
I think I found my retirement heaven.
Black alone - 1,502 (52.2%)
White alone - 1,172 (40.7%)
Two or more races - 115 (4.0%)
American Indian alone - 70 (2.4%)
Hispanic - 13 (0.5%)
Asian alone - 6 (0.2%)
maybe Walmart was not the bad guy here...maybe they knew that there would be rioting unless they "let" this happen...
“Smile. You’re on Candid Camera, A-Hole!”
I agree. It was done on purpose.
