While in the store officer noticed a 43-year-old white male that had been involved in an attempted shoplifting earlier at the Walmart at 8445 Walbrook Drive.

KCSO stopped the suspect in the Walmart parking lot and detained him in KCSO patrol car. KCSO officers had been informed earlier that the suspect was with a 31-year-old white male at the Walmart off Walbrook Drive when they attempted to shoplift there. KCSO went back in the store to find the second suspect. KCSO was informed by loss prevention that he was currently watching the second suspect who had a cart full of merchandise. Loss prevention was watching the second suspect due to his history of walking out with merchandise and not paying for it.
