17yr old fired from Walmart, then steals thousands


A 17-year-old Oklahoma boy fired from Walmart for stealing scammed the superstore out of thousands of dollars, authorities said.

"He's intelligent, he's brave ... he's very confident at what he's doing and he plays the part well," Sgt. Jeremey Lewis of the Moore Police Department told The Huffington Post on Monday.

According to Lewis, the teen, who police have not publicly named due to his age, was an employee of an Oklahoma City Walmart before he was fired for allegedly stealing money. Down but not out, the teen went to a Walmart in nearby Edmond on Black Friday, police said.

"He told them he was there from another Walmart to help with Black Friday," Lewis said. "They put him at a register. He worked for about six hours and took all the cash that he made."

We don't know if it is poorly written or not.

"If he's charged as an adult -– which is actually what we are trying to do...""He's 17, so he blew it [the money] pretty quick."Way to be consistent...

Fair enough, it could well be that it is an inside job.............but it would be negligent of the newspaper to insinuate that with nothing to go on, therefore, it is not a poorly written article on that basis.

I haven't heard that collusion is a strong possibility.  I have however investigated hundreds of these and from the way it reads to me that there are facts left out, either purposely or unknowingly.  One of those COULD be collusion.  Just a possibility; I don't know and I don't feel like calling peers at Walmart to find out.
