Texans Accused of Shoplifting in Spencer

By  | 

A group of accused shoplifters from the Lonestar State spends the weekend all alone behind bars.

It happened Thursday at the Walmart in Spencer.

Police arrested three adults, plus a minor.

They include Michael Gonzalez, Catelynn Chapa and Emmanual Zavala.

Investigators say the group from San Antonio was part of a shoplifting scheme, trying to steal $1,400 worth of product.

They say once inside the group would take a large item in a box, take it out and refill the box with smaller items like DVD's and clothes.

A security guard busted one of them, leading to the arrests.

Police now believe the Texans have been doing the same thing in Walmarts across several states.

All four are charged with grand larceny, conspiracy to commit grand larceny, drug possession, carrying altered drivers licenses and carrying a deadly weapon.

They were taken to the Central Regional Jail.

Police continue to investigate.
