A man is in the custody of the Manitowoc Police Department after he stole over $2000 worth of items from Walmart. Police were called to the retail store yesterday afternoon to view video surveillance of the theft. On the video a man was seen grabbing a shopping cart, walking to the electronics section, and placing two items into the cart. He then brought the items, a computer monitor valued at about $800, and a computer tower with a value of about $1260, in the garden center, and placed them in a corner. He then exited the store, and moved his car to the 3900 block of Grand Ave. He then entered the store through a hole in fence he created, and moved the items into his vehicle. The man was caught when he returned to the store at around 2:00 this morning, and was recognized by store employees. While being placed under arrest, and presented with video evidence, the man said “Alright, you caught me.” The man is now facing charges of felony retail theft, and criminal damage to property.
