[Source] - Police say a woman traveling from Wal-Mart to Wal-Mart, stealing various items tried to do the same crime a third time in Bellmead. Bellmead detectives say 29-year-old Bridget Coker was wearing an ankle bracelet because she got caught stealing at the same Wal-Mart in Bellmead, by the same employees, on two separate occasions. The house arrest ankle monitor on her ankle probably tipped off the 90-year-old greeter that this young woman needed to be watched. Yesterday afternoon Coker walked into a Wal-Mart and grabbed a back-pack. She filled it up with hygiene supplies and over the counter medicine. Police say employees noticed her face from the other incidents. Coker tried run when they confronted her, and employees refused to let her leave. When police got there she admitted her actions were just “stupid,” and offered to leave the items behind if police let her go.
A lot of people are going to look at this and think “Wow what an idiot, who would try to keep robbing the same Wal Mart over and over again?” Well let me answer that question with another question. Have you seen who works at Wal Mart? It’s not exactly a crack security squad they have at those stores. They’ve got associates walking around that are either 95 years old or look like that guy who got arrested yesterday looking like Sloth from the Goonies. Like as awful as it is to say there’s no better group of people to rob from than the people employed at Wal Mart. It’s basically like trying to steal all the sports equipment at the Special Olympics. Shouldn’t be that tough to do. The only pre-req is that you have to have a heart made of stone or a bleeding cooter in crazy need of some tampons.
