A Parkersburg Walmart employee is arrested for stealing pills.

It happened at the Walmart on South side.

During a routine pharmacy inventory, store management told police there was a pill shortage. A large amount of generic Xanax was missing.

After looking through surveillance footage, the staff noticed a janitor taking pills since December last year.

Police arrested William Thompson for felony embezzlement.

They say he voluntarily surrendered over two thousand pills.

He was arraigned and released on a ten thousand dollar bond.
