LuLu is right. Those guys get a bum wrap. Of course, that doesn't mean that some bad guys might be slipping in with the good ones ...

Really Concerned Granny? Obviously you don't know anyone working in the oil field. Those guys are too tired to even go to WalMart.

Did the guy in the picture also steal the soda he is drinking? Make sure you add that to the list of stolen items.

I was at Wal-Mart tonight and saw Floresville P.D arrest two guys for stealing computers. They were arrested when throwing the computers in the trunk of thier car. Do the crime do the time!!!

Once the thieves know your are an easy target,, they keep coming. The bad part about this is by wal mart being an easy target, it encourages the bad folks to come and hit other local businesses... Keep your eyes open !!!

I think it is time for our Wal-Mart to get their heads on and hire security, real security!
