Police: Disguised man steals over $75,000 from Walmart

July 6, 2015

BRISTOW, Okla. (AP) — Oklahoma and federal authorities are searching for a man who they saw walked off with more than $75,000 after tricking Walmart employees into thinking he was an armored truck driver.

Bristow Police Detective Kevin Webster says the suspect entered the Walmart around 10:30 a.m. Saturday dressed similarly to a Loomis armored transport employee. He says the suspect strolled to the cash office, signed for the deposit and casually walked out of the store.

Walmart employees called police after the real Loomis employee arrived about 45 minutes later.
