Rifle stolen from Texas Walmart display case

Occurred February 26, 2013.

A man, Jose Johnson, age 22, walked into a Walmart in Alice, Texas, broke into a display case, stole a rifle, and fled the store, all within four minutes, and no one tried to stop him.

From an article:

Jose Johnson, 22, was arrested Tuesday for Theft of a Firearm after APD was able to identify the man using surveillance video from Wal-Mart, according to Chief Randy Weems.

A theft of firearm and criminal mischief were reported at 2:34 a.m. Tuesday at 2701 E. Main St. APD Criminal Investigators had Johnson arrested by 3:25 p.m. that afternoon.

Officer Jesse Garza, Sgt. Daniel Elizondo and CID Sgt. Matt Cooke responded to the location, at which someone had broken into a gun case.

According to the report, the Wal-Mart employee said a rifle was stolen from the gun case, located in the sporting goods section of the store. 

Officer Garza reported that the employee reported the theft occurred around 10:46 p.m. Monday night. The time was confirmed by security footage of the incident.

The report indicates that the suspect took about four minutes to access the case and leave the store. However the specific make and model number of the rifle was unknown.

Officer Garza reported that the employee would have to research inventory to find out what was stolen and report the serial number to the department.

According to the report, the suspect was wearing dark pants, a dark hooded jacket and a dark shirt. The suspect left the parking lot in a dark color four-door car. 

The lock that secured the rifles in the gun case, which was valued at $50, was damaged.

Yes, Walmart makes it that easy.
