Hernando Today reports that three Brooksville residents have been charged with felony theft relating to a Walmart shoplifting incident.
Allegedly, the suspects reportedly walked out of the Wal-Mart on Cortez Boulevard with a television, then sold it to a person in the parking lot of a nearby liquor store. Deputies were called to intervene after an argument broke out between the seller and buyer. A deputy had a hunch that the TV was stolen property, but without a recent theft report from Wal-Mart, he could not prove it.
The next day, the same trio tried to walk out of the same Wal-Mart with a TV but was stopped at the door, a report states. The deputy returned to the Wal-Mart and reviewed the surveillance tape that showed the same perpetrators of the original theft.
