Police: Man stole at least $200K from Topeka Walmart

November 29, 2011


— Police say a man has stolen between $200,000 and $500,000 from a Walmart store in Topeka.

The Topeka Capital-Journal reported that there were no immediate arrests.

The theft occurred early Saturday, just hours after the Black Friday sales ended. Capt. Jerry Stanley said the thief was caught on a video recording as he walked into the manager's office and walked off with the money.

Stanley says no employee or customer was threatened or confronted by the thief.

Wal-Mart Stores Inc. spokeswoman Dianna Gee says the company will consider offering a reward to help catch the thief.

I guess all of those children in China won't be getting a bonus this year.

All those people who robbed the Lawrence Wal-Mart for a few hundred bucks need to take a lesson from this guy. He was for sure wrong, but robbing the place without showing a weapon shows some brains. ,And shame on Wal-Mart, you have that much money without security, you put lives at risk.
