Oklahoma Teen Dupes Walmart Managers Out of Almost $30,000


A 17-year-old scammed 3 Oklahoma Walmart stores out of nearly $30,000. 

Police say the teen, whose name is not being released because he is a juvenile, conned the managers of those stores into thinking he was an employee.  The teen “acted as if he was a general manager from another store,” says the police report. He told the managers he was doing an inventory before corporate higher ups came to inspect them after the holidays.  Surveillance cameras recorded the teen all alone in the cash room where he took “multiple bundles of cash, stuffing them inside his pockets and clothes,” says the report.  He allegedly showed up in uniform and nametag at a store in Edmond, where he worked a register and pocketed $3,000. 

Police arrested the teen last week after he stole from a Walmart in Norman.  Authorities say he had a uniform and nametag because he had worked at a Walmart in Oklahoma city…before he was fired for stealing.
