4 Arrested For Theft At Walmart Over Weekend

Two Hopkins County women were arrested Saturday evening at Walmart for theft, including one whose charge was enhanced to a felony offense due to prior convictions. A Cumby pair was also arrested at the store Sunday for theft, according to police reports.

Police were dispatched to the store to a report of people causing a disturbance. Upon arrival, asset protection staff alleged the pair selected items, concealed them and passed all points of sale without paying for them. Total value of the recovered items was less than $100, Sulphur Springs Police Lt. Eddie Moon and Sgt. Joshua Shufeldt alleged in arrest reports.

Alberta Lene Duffey, 60, of Sulphur Springs was arrested at 8:30 p.m. July 27 on a felony theft charge due to two previous convictions, making the charge a stated jail felony offense; she remained in the county jail Monday morning in lieu of $5,000 bond on the state jail felony charge, according to jail and arrest reports.

The 54-year-old Como woman with her was charged with misdemeanor theft; she remained in jail early Monday morning in lieu of $1,000 bond on the misdemeanor charge, according to arrest and jail reports.

At about 8:40 p.m. Sunday, police were again dispatched to Walmart, where a theft had been reported.

Upon arrival, asset protection staff at the store alleged two people walked to the self-checkout. They allegedly paid less than $2 for two of the nearly $500 worth of items they attempted to leave the store with, according to police reports.

Consequently, the 28-year-old Cumby man and 50-year-old Cumby woman were arrested on the Class B charge of theft of items valued at more than $100 but less than $750, according to arrest reports. Both Cumby residents remained in the county jail Monday morning in lieu of $1,000 bond on the charge, according to jail reports.
