Police arrested three suspected shoplifters were captured after they reportedly walked out of a Southside Wal-Mart with hundreds of dollars in stolen merchandise on Wednesday afternoon.
"The security folks here at Wal-Mart were able to spot them because they were loading up a cart, and then they just walked out without paying for it," said Sgt. Ross Richards with the Corpus Christi Police Department. "Just pushing the cart. We call those push-aways."
Police were able to recover televisions, kitchen appliances and other electronics.
They said the three walked out of the Saratoga Wal-Mart with the items, but two of the accomplices, both men, fled the scene with the merchandise, leaving one of the men's 18-year old wife at the scene.
"When I got here, the security pointed out the female to me in the parking lot, and I took her into custody," Richards said. "While we were waiting there, the two males returned looking for her. We were able to take them into custody, and we were able to locate the merchandise stolen."
Turns out the men stored the stolen goods behind a dumpster at the Luby's on Saratoga. All three have been charged with shoplifting.
