But you know, they do have someone monitoring the self-checkout lines:
An Abilene man was arrested Friday after police said he tried to pass off a TV valued at $228 for less than $2.
According to police, 52-year-old William Keltner had been shopping at Walmart on Highway 351 when he removed a barcode tag from a hanger worth only $1.17 and placed it on the TV valued at $228.
Then again, he has previous theft convictions, so perhaps he’s even dumber than we thought.
