Walmart security cameras help in weekend investigation of stolen goods off store shelves

paris police carParis police officers were called to Walmart after the store’s loss prevention personnel reported observing a person leave the store with “a suspicious package” and a large flat-screen television.

Personnel followed the person to the parking lot and obtained a license plate number of the vehicle that the television was placed into, police department spokesman Curtis Garrett said.

Upon reviewing security footage, it was discovered that the person had selected some items from a shelf and had placed the items inside a plastic Walmart bag, making it appear that the items had been purchased.

The security footage showed that the person then left the store without paying for the items.

Officers later located the vehicle and arrested Lacheysa Sean Conley, 35, of 1503 Bonham St. She was later transferred to the Lamar County Jail on the enhanced charge of theft of property under $1,500 with two or more prior convictions of that offense.

She was booked into jail at 9:40 p.m. Friday and was released at 5:17 p.m. Sunday after making $5,000 bond.
