Cops: Walmart Worker, 18, Caught Using, Then Returning Old Spice Deodorant Sticks To Store Shelves
Not every teenager working at a big box retailer is as dreamy as Alex from Target.
An 18-year-old Walmart employee who used Old Spice deodorant sticks before returning them to store shelves is facing an embezzlement probe after admitting he swiped more than $1800 in merchandise from a South Carolina store.
Store security began monitoring Chandler Roberts after he was filmed taking milk and cookies--which he had not purchased--into a break room, according to a police report.
When confronted about his actions, Roberts “admitted to stealing several items,” and later “returned numerous stolen items to asset protection” officials. Walmart calculated that the purloined goods were worth $1823.25.
More importantly, as noted by cops, Roberts was twice videotaped “selecting a stick of Old Spice deodorant,” which he proceeded to apply while in the store’s bedding department. On both occasions, the teen then returned the toiletry item to a store shelf. Cops did not address whether the used deodorant ended up being purchased by a customer.
Police are continuing to investigate the Walmart thefts.
