Walmart Loss Prevention Accuses Shopper Of Stealing Items She Actually Paid For

Megastores like Walmart go through so many customers on a daily basis, that they usually have someone standing at the gates checking receipts to make sure nothing extra makes it out unpaid for. Usually they’re pretty chill. Usually.

A video recently went viral after a Walmart loss-prevention duo tried to stop a shopper they believed was stealing groceries and other items from the store. Specifically, a Lion King toy.

Two employees from the Burnsville, Minnesota location stopped shopper Gina Lescarbeau as she tried to leave the Walmart, Heavy reports.

Lascarbeau’s toy was believed to be $15 by blond lothario Kenny Swanson-Peck, where she adamantly claims she paid $7 for it. Swanson-Peck and his coworker, Thomas Ewalt, soon discovered that they were in the wrong after some price checking.

It should be noted that at no point does the Walmart employee apologize to the understandably angry customer. Hopefully they got a stern talking to from upper management since this video went viral.

Man, if someone accused me of stealing my deli fried chicken fix, I probably wouldn’t show the amount of restraint this lady did.
