“She has done so much for me,” Brown said later of the woman who has been his girlfriend for three years, “and I felt I had to support her.” On Tuesday, a Walmart loss prevention employee noticed a suspicious person in a motorized wheelchair in the infant section, according to a police report. He saw Brown — who said later that one of his feet has been amputated — enter the women’s section and pick up two brassieres. He then went to another section, where police say he stuffed the items into his pants. The bras were valued at $7 and $13. One was red and the other zebra-striped. Brown went to the self checkout area and paid for some items, but not the brassieres, and then left the store. He was detained by store officials, who called police....At the time of his arrest, Brown said, he had $350 in his pocket. But that was rent money, he said, and he had to make it stretch. Times are rough, and sometimes you’ve got to take chances, he said. “I messed up, but I ain’t sorry about it.”Speechless.
Meanwhile, at a Walmart in Rome, Ga., 27-year-old Joseph Lee Stringer was charged with shoplifting after employees watched him stuff a rotisserie chicken, chicken wings, a mouth guard and two toothbrushes down the front of his pants and walked out of the store without paying for the items. Wow!
