First of all I thought all

First of all I thought all the gaming systems were always locked up at Walmart. Secondly and perhaps the most confusing to me is how in the world can one person fit all of that into their pants?

On a recent post, someone

On a recent post, someone commented many are stealing for food. This one doesn't appear to be the case. Couple hundred dollars in sneakers and clothes he's wearing.

If you posit that it he might sell the items for food money, why didn't he just steal food and cut out a step?

Nope, he just wanted stuff but didn't want to pay for it. Which is why the prisons are packed. I have no sympathy. People like him cause the prices for honest people to rise.

@Vettegirl... I thought the

@Vettegirl... I thought the gaming systems were behind lock and key as well. Maybe he had a friend working in the store?

Someone who steals a loaf of bread and a jar of peanut butter is hungry. Someone stealing a Wii, cell phones and hard drives AIN'T hungry, he's a low-down thief.

He looks like he's grinning in the middle photo, doesn't he?
