How many times have you seen the Wal-Mart smilie face going from sign to sign dropping prices. Sometimes it’s just all too much. Enough in fact for one man to take it upon himself to do his own price chopping.
MONROE, La. (AP) – While Wal-Mart is known for dropping its prices, one West Monroe man took the ad campaign seriously when he dropped the price of a plasma television from $984 to $4.88. Police arrested Chandon L. Simms, 23, on Tuesday at the retail store on a charge of felony theft.
According to police reports, Simms carried a 42-inch Sanyo Plasma TV to a self-checkout aisle after switching the original price tag of $984 with one for only $4.88. Wal-Mart Loss Prevention officers witnessed the alleged transaction and called police.
