Police trying to ID woman who stole from Walmart by ‘returning’ item she didn’t pay for
PASCO, Wash. — A woman’s sneaky attempt to steal from Walmart appears to have backfired.
Police say the woman walked into Walmart’s Pasco location empty-handed, picked out a roll-up foam mattress and brought it straight to the customer service desk to return it. The incident happened on Sunday, July 28 at about 1:30 p.m.
“When you don’t have a receipt, which was the case this time because YOU NEVER PAID FOR IT, you get your refund in the form of a gift card,” police wrote in a Facebook post.
Police said they’ll be ready if the woman returns to Walmart to use her gift card.
In the meantime, they have shared photos of the woman and the car she was driving. Anyone who can identify her should call police on their nonemergency number at 509-628-0333. The case number to reference for the theft is PP19-24494.
