Former Walmart security employee arrested for stealing guns from Walmart

On Christmas Day, 2012, six guns were stolen from a Walmart in Los Lunas, New Mexico, when the store was closed, as I previously reported here at Walmart Shootings.

Four men have now been arrested, and all six guns have been recovered.

One of the men involved in the robbery was a former Walmart security employee.  The other three were juveniles.

Los Lunas police say they have recovered six guns stolen from a local Wal-Mart in a Christmas Day burglary, and four people have been arrested. 
Twenty-three-year-old Emilio Larsen of Albuquerque, a former employee who worked in Wal-Mart's security department, is being held in the Valencia County jail on charges that include breaking and entering, aggravated burglary, criminal damage, conspiracy and tampering with evidence. 
Police Chief Roy Melnick says three juveniles will also be charged in connection with the burglary. Two of them are accused of taking items from the store and the third allegedly acted as a lookout. 
Among the items stolen were five Remington rifles, a Remington shotgun and a game console. 
Melnick says it was important to recover the guns so they would not fall into the wrong hands.
Walmart might want to be more careful who they hire for security.

Walmart.  Save money.  Die faster.
