Man Charged With Retail Theft After Stealing from Walmart for Fourth Time
A man was charged Monday with retail theft after leaving a Walmart without paying for nearly $500 worth of merchandise, according to a criminal complaint.
Gary Anderson, 41, of Bellefonte, was seen on video leaving the Benner Pike Walmart with a Samsung home theater system, JBL sound bar and Manhattan area rug on Thursday without paying for the items, police said. Besides retail theft, he is charged with driving with a suspended license.
Anderson has been charged three other times for stealing from the very same Walmart store, according to police.
On June 15, Anderson was allegedly seen on surveillance video taking an airbed cot valued at $125 from the store after returning a coffee maker.
Anderson was seen again on surveillance video on July 16; this time taking a vacuum and a desk top computer, with a combined value of $676, police said.
He was seen a third time on video last Wednesday allegedly taking a Samsung surround sound system valued at $278 from the store.
