Walmart Employees Charged in Theft Ring

Suspects allegedly stole more than $6,000 of merchandise.

Six Walmart employees in Acworth have been charged in a theft ring at the store at 3105 Cobb Parkway.

On the day before Christmas Eve, Acworth's police department was contacted by the company's security loss prevention office, which had began noticing discrepancies in transactions involving the six workers.

Walmart's loss prevention began to investigate the case along with Acworth detectives, and discovered that the employees were involved with theft of more than $6,000 worth of merchandise by voiding transactions at the register. This allowed co-workers to leave the store without paying.

The following were charged with theft by deception:

1)    Beauford J. Goodrum (21) of Kennesaw

2)    Lamaris Denise Fields (19) of Acworth

3)    Shawn Allen Harris (22) of Dallas

4)    Jamecah Ania Ray (19) of Acworth

5)    Barbara Weston (56) of Decatur

6)    Yashica Rene Campbell (43) of Kennesaw

Not surprising. 50% of 'shrink' is from employee theft, and about 25 percent each from shoplifting and paperwork errors. Since Wally World has pretty much gutted its 'Asset Protection' it isn't surprising that it got up to 6K before they got caught. Once the totals are finalized it will probably be more than 6.
