Six employees at an Acworth Walmart were arrested for allowing more than $6,000 worth of merchandise to be stolen from the store.
Walmart loss prevention officers called the Acworth Police Department on Dec. 23 to report the thefts at the store in the 3100 block of Cobb Parkway.
Investigators soon determined the six suspects rang up each others’ purchases and then voided the transactions, allowing Walmart employees to take items from the store without paying for them.
The suspects were identified as 43-year-old Yashica Campbell of Kennesaw, 21-year-old Beauford Goordum of Kennesaw, 19-year-old Lamaris Fields of Acworth, 22-year-old Shawn Harris of Dallas, 19-year-old Jamecah Ray of Acworth and 56-year-old Barbara Weston of Decatur.
All six employees were charged with theft by deception.
