Well I wish this story could have made Yolanda’s Lamont award.
PEARLAND, Texas — Three teenagers were caught on camera stealing thousands of dollars worth of electronics from a Walmart store, police said.
Pearland police said the teens went to Walmart store on F.M. 518 near Dixie Farm Road about 11 p.m. Jan. 29.
The group walked around the store for about 30 minutes, and they picked up clothing and other items before going after what police said they went to the store to get.
Investigators said the trio grabbed four Playstation 3 systems and two Xbox 360 systems out of a locked cabinet. Police said it appeared that the cabinet had been opened with a key.
The teens then headed to the garden center, where they had previously cut a hole in the fence, investigators said. They pushed the game systems through the hole so they ended up on the outside of the store, police said.
The teens then ditched their cart in the store, walked out and went over to the side of the store where all the stolen goods were sitting, police said.
Detectives said the teens left, but two of them went back to the store at 8:30 a.m. Feb. 18. They took more game systems and several games, police said.
Long Ngyuen, 18, has been arrested in connection with the theft. Nguyen is a student at Nimitz High School, and police said they suspect the other two teens involved may also be high school students.
Anyone with information is asked to call Pearland police at 281-997-4100.
