Three shoplifters arrested at Walmart

LAUREL COUNTY, Ky. — Three shoplifters were arrested on Tuesday, Nov. 19 at Walmart Supercenter, located on the Ky. 192 Bypass.  

London Police Sgt. Matthew Moore arrested 18-year-old Brian A. Jackson of Burnett Road in London when it was discovered that he concealed an Xbox controller, valued at $26.96.  Jackson attempted to leave the store without payment but was apprehended and detained by Wamart Asset Protection.

An hour later, Officer Bryon Lawson was dispatched to Walmart for a complaint of two more shoplifters.  Lawson was advised by Walmart Asset Protection that 37-year-old Tonia R. Hibbard of Lockard Creek Road and 44-year-old Valeria A. Rojas of Morgan Branch Road, both of Manchester, had concealed eight University of Kentucky T-shirts, valued at $131.73, on their persons and attempted to leave the store without payment.

All three suspects were taken into custody and charged with theft by unlawful taking under $500 and were lodged in the Laurel County Detention Center.
