A Walmart greeter was arrested Tuesday after police say he had a hand in stealing two TVs from the store.
On April 16, Frederick Leon Gallimore drove to the Walmart at 7631 Gall Blvd. with a man whose identity is still unknown, a Zephyrhills Police report says. They parked the silver van at the south end of the parking lot.
Once inside, they split up, the report states. Gallimore, 34, clocked in and started his shift. The other man headed for the electronics section. He grabbed two LCD screen TVs, valued at $476, and headed for an exit, police said.
Gallimore, whose job is to check receipts from customers leaving the store, left his post. The other man walked out, the report says. Gallimore followed.
They walked together and loaded the TVs into the van, police said. Gallimore went back to work.
Gallimore was arrested on a felony charge of retail theft. He remained Wednesday in the Land O’Lakes jail in lieu of $2,000 bail.
A manager said Gallimore has been fired from Walmart.
COLUMBUS, Ind. — A Columbus man sustained a “significant puncture wound” after stabbing himself with a fishing knife this morning at the east-side WalMart.
The 32-year-old man was taken to Columbus Regional Hospital for treatment after police found him with a stab wound in his torso.
Columbus Police Patrolmen Steve Long and Zach Burbrink responded to the store at 5 a.m. and found the man with blood on his shirt leaning up against the side of the building near the entrance to the grocery area.
The man used a fishing knife he got in the store to stab himself inside the store, according to police. The knife was located by the store’s customer service center, and there was a trail of blood from the center to one of the cash registers.
Police have not determined why the man stabbed himself, but they think he was talking on a phone at the time.
The man’s name was not released. The Republic does not usually cover incidents involving self-inflicted harm unless the incident occurs in a public place.
Woodstock – WOODSTOCK- The 20-year-old man arrested for exposing his genitals at two Woodstock locations pleaded guilty and was sentenced in Woodstock court Wednesday.
David Stevens was sentenced to serve 17 days in jail but will serve 15 of those days because of credit given for his pretrial custody. He was also ordered to submit a DNA sample for the national DNA databank and received two years of probation.
The Woodstock Police Service had been searching for Stevens after incidents at the Wal-Mart and the Woodstock Public Library. In both incidents, he exposed himself to women in the aisles of each location.
The Wal-Mart incident was reported on July 11 and the Woodstock Public Library incident took place on July 14. Police released surveillance footage from both events on July 20, asking for the public’s assistance in identifying the suspect.
The original two counts of mischief were dropped from Stevens’ list of charges. For each act of exposing himself, he received 17 days, minus time spent in custody and the same sentence for breaching a prior probation order to keep the peace and be on good behaviour. The sentences are to be served concurrently.
