The $14,215 shoplift

Crimestoppers issued the following bulletin and photos. 

The Madison Police Department is asking for help from the public with a Felony Shoplifting Case. On 03/03/017, an unidentified male seen in the photos, entered Walmart #2720 located at 127 Grandview Blvd in Madison, MS. Just after midnight the unidentified male wearing what appears to be a light colored jogging suit with a Dallas Cowboys Logo on the front left pocket of the pants could be seen removing various electronic devices from the store and taking the items out to the open area of the garden center.

The subject first entered the store after he walked over from the Applebee’s and Lowe’s area across the street. It was eventually determined by video that the subject had placed what appears to be a large dark colored duffle bag outside the garden center where he eventually gathered up all of the merchandise he had removed and placed all of it into the large bag.

The subject was last seen on video walking back towards the Applebee's and Lowe’s area where he disappeared from view on the camera. The unidentified male was determined to have stolen the items from the store between 12:40 am and 1:30 am.

The subject managed to take a total of $14,215.00 in merchandise consisting of Nest Smart Thermostats, Nest Indoor and Outdoor Security camera systems, Canary Security Camera Systems, Netgear Wi-Fi Equipment, Google Home Systems, Doorbells with built in security cameras and smart Smoke Detectors.

Anyone with information that leads to the positive location and arrest of this individual would be eligible for a reward of up to $2500.00. If you have information to help in this case, please call Crime Stoppers at 601-355-TIPS (8477) or submit a tip online through the Web Tip link on the home page of the Central MS Crime Stoppers website. Or use your mobile device or computer to submit a tip by going to

It's Walmart's own fault for not having sufficient staff to cover the store. He apparently had plenty of time and wasn't stopped by anyone. If they leave the garden entrance open and unstaffed after midnight they are just asking for stuff to walk out.

Conjecture @10:02.

Is that Tony Romo? My how the mighty have fallen.

Large bit of irony here. Dude stealing security equipment & is captured on security cameras.

Whenever he cops his plea in Madison Circuit, a judge will make some hay over this.

And I don't think it's "Wal-Mart's fault" when any individual makes a conscious decision to steal property that belongs to someone else.

@10:08 - yes, it's conjecture, and opinion. And your point is?

It's WalMart's fault for someone stealing from them?

Thanks to the Madison PD for this how-to lesson:

1) After midnight
2) Walk, don't drive to arrive
3) Large duffle bag outside unsecured entrance
4) Wear common sweat clothes
5) Never look at security camera
6) Load up, walk away past security camera coverage

Think I've got it. Appreciate the tips

Madison County Thugs! This doesn't happen in Jackson.

Didn't Maryville pass a law requiring businesses to install security cameras in their parking lots. Seems if they were, we'd be able to follow him to his carol choice

Obviously a Dak fan.

Let's you know the uselessness of cameras. You can outfit your home with cameras, so you can watch video of people stealing your stuff.

I would prefer people not have the opportunity to steal my stuff. Better install those iron doors from Cary Crowley!

I don't think this guy will be caught. Based on what he took, he's probably a professional stealing to fill orders. He's probably not local. It's conjecture, I know.

Madison is so dangerous! We need to get rid of all this dangerous retail!!!

In the second picture of the suspect wearing a biking jersey, I'd swear the guy is Mayor Gene McGee!

Hat tip to 1:17! That's some excellent jackassery on your part.

The suspect in the second photo is brazenly smiling at the camera as he rides off in full bike car on a freshly stolen bike. What has happened to Madison?? Everyone should consider moving to the Bold New City, where nothing is even worth stealing.

"Is that Tony Romo? "

Moves too fast to be Romo.

No alarms at any time?

Romo would have been on his back, writhing in pain from the wind of the automatic doors.

If it was after midnight, as alleged above, the garden center door nor the south entrance are open.....unless they've recently changed their procedures.

Will this affect Gene Magee's upcoming municipal contest?

That is not the garden center exit/entrance.

He stole the wrong camera!

Anonymous said...

That's probably a shot of him entering, not leaving.

Anonymous said...

Doesn't matter if he is entering or leaving...You can NOT leave the garden center exit/entrance at night. Period. And the south main entrance is locked off prior to midnight. If you've ever been to WM in Madison early a.m. you know this.

Those of you with the sarcastic Madison is crime ridden and Jackson is not, are coming across as miserably cynical folk. No ONE on this post has even mentioned Jackson, MS but you, which shows, you just can't help yourselves even when a crime DOES occur in Madison, MS, which they do and will and more will come. That's not to say that an area is terrible, but that thieves and thugs are mobile! I too do NOT feel this person is a local. He probably road right off the interstate, stole, then got right back on it since he was "smart" enough not to bring a vehicle with license plates to the scene. There are NO crime free towns or cities. It's only a matter of the likelihood of something going down, no matter how big or small the crime is. As areas grow and flourish, they become prime targets for criminal activity and a strong, visible police force will only do so much.

9:05am, well done. You just proved why Madison blows.

Thar 12:00 Blows... said...

March 30, 2017 @ 12:00 pm: Can you explain your post? It makes no sense. Wait....I have it. You just wanted to see yourself in print.

Trollfest '09

Trollfest '07 was such a success that Jackson Jambalaya will once again host Trollfest '09. Catch this great event which will leave NE Jackson & Fondren in flames. Othor Cain and his band, The Black Power Structure headline the night while Sonjay Poontang returns for an encore performance. Former Frank Melton bodyguard Marcus Wright makes his premier appearance at Trollfest singing "I'm a Sweet Transvestite" from "The Rocky Horror Picture Show." Kamikaze will sing his new hit, “How I sold out to da Man.” Robbie Bell again performs: “Mamas, don't let your babies grow up to be Bells” and “Any friend of Ed Peters is a friend of mine”. After the show, Ms. Bell will autograph copies of her mug shot photos. In a salute to “Dancing with the Stars”, Ms. Bell and Hinds County District Attorney Robert Smith will dance the Wango Tango.

Wrestling returns, except this time it will be a Battle Royal with Othor Cain, Ben Allen, Kim Wade, Haley Fisackerly, Alan Lange, and “Big Cat” Donna Ladd all in the ring at the same time. The Battle Royal will be in a steel cage, no time limit, no referee, and the losers must leave town. Marshand Crisler will be the honorary referee (as it gives him a title without actually having to do anything).

Meet KIM Waaaaaade at the Entergy Tent. For five pesos, Kim will sell you a chance to win a deed to a crack house on Ridgeway Street stuffed in the Howard Industries pinata. Don't worry if the pinata is beaten to shreds, as Mr. Wade has Jose, Emmanuel, and Carlos, all illegal immigrants, available as replacements for the it. Upon leaving the Entergy tent, fig leaves will be available in case Entergy literally takes everything you have as part of its Trollfest ticket price adjustment charge.

Donna Ladd of The Jackson Free Press will give several classes on learning how to write. Smearing, writing without factchecking, and reporting only one side of a story will be covered. A donation to pay their taxes will be accepted and she will be signing copies of their former federal tax liens. Ms. Ladd will give a dramatic reading of her two award-winning essays (They received The Jackson Free Press "Best Of" awards.) "Why everything is always about me" and "Why I cover murders better than anyone else in Jackson".

In the spirit of helping those who are less fortunate, Trollfest '09 adopts a cause for which a portion of the proceeds and donations will be donated: Keeping Frank Melton in his home. The “Keep Frank Melton From Being Homeless” booth will sell chances for five dollars to pin the tail on the jackass. John Reeves has graciously volunteered to be the jackass for this honorable excursion into saving Frank's ass. What's an ass between two friends after all? If Mr. Reeves is unable to um, perform, Speaker Billy McCoy has also volunteered as when the word “jackass” was mentioned he immediately ran as fast as he could to sign up.

In order to help clean up the legal profession, Adam Kilgore of the Mississippi Bar will be giving away free, round-trip plane tickets to the North Pole where they keep their bar complaint forms (which are NOT available online). If you don't want to go to the North Pole, you can enjoy Brant Brantley's (of the Mississippi Commission on Judicial Performance) free guided tours of the quicksand field over by High Street where all complaints against judges disappear. If for some reason you are unable to control yourself, never fear; Judge Houston Patton will operate his jail where no lawyers are needed or allowed as you just sit there for minutes... hours.... months...years until he decides he is tired of you sitting in his jail. Do not think Judge Patton is a bad judge however as he plans to serve free Mad Dog 20/20 to all inmates.

Trollfest '09 is a pet-friendly event as well. Feel free to bring your dog with you and do not worry if your pet gets hungry, as employees of the Jackson Zoo will be on hand to provide some of their animals as food when it gets to be feeding time for your little loved one.

Relax at the Fox News Tent. Since there are only three blonde reporters in Jackson (being blonde is a requirement for working at Fox News), Megan and Kathryn from WAPT and Wendy from WLBT will be on loan to Fox. To gain admittance to the VIP section, bring either your Republican Party ID card or a Rebel Flag. Bringing both and a torn-up Obama yard sign will entitle you to free drinks served by Megan, Wendy, and Kathryn. Get your tickets now. Since this is an event for trolls, no ID is required. Just bring the hate. Bring the family, Trollfest '09 is for EVERYONE!!!

This is definitely a Beaver production.
