Theft reported at Walmart

November 19, 2011


A staff member at Walmart, 3300 Iowa, reported to Lawrence police Sunday the theft of an HP laptop computer valued at $639 and a Dell laptop computer valued at $559 from the store between 3:30 a.m. and 4:20 a.m. that day.

According to friends of mine who worked at Wal-Mart, a good place to start looking would be with employees. He said stuff goes out of there in large quantities at night.

I guess they don't have "loss prevention' patrolling the store at that hour? I have seen these characters with handcuffs on their belt loops. Can someone other than police detain and restrain like that?

If they are licensed then yes, they can detain to a certain extent. It has been awhile since I have done that type of work, but there is a "security license" and their "powers to detain" are only on walmart property that they work at...
