Trucks stolen from Walmart parking lot earlier in the year
A Union woman has been charged with two counts of grand larceny in the theft of two trucks from the Walmart parking lot earlier in the year.
In the first incident, dated February 18, a blue 1994 Ford Ranger truck was stolen. The victim stated he parked his truck in the parking lot, left the key in the ignition, left the truck running, and left the doors unlocked while he went into Walmart to buy some items.
Cpl. Kayla Garrett, who responded to the incident, viewed video footage leading up to the theft. She saw a gold four-door vehicle pull into the parking lot around 10:23 a.m. A white male and white female exited the vehicle. The pair separated while in the store. The male paid for some items in the self-checkout line and walked to the parking lot. The video showed him walking around vehicles that were not near the vehicle in which he arrived. He went back to the gold vehicle and put the items he bought in the car. He then walked through the parking lot again and appeared to be looking into vehicles and pulling on door handles. He walked up to the victim’s truck, looked inside, and walked away. A short time later, he walked back to the truck, entered through the driver’s side door, and drove off in the truck.
The truck was recovered later that day on Industrial Park Road, with multiple tools taken from the toolbox, along with a tool bag and a couple of keys.
The second incident took place March 15, again at Walmart. In that incident, a 1999 Chevy Silverado was taken from the Walmart parking lot.
According to the arrest warrants, 29-year-old Kacie Rebekah Marsh was arrested and charged with two counts of grand larceny. The warrants state that Marsh assisted and participated with Michael Travis Waddell in the thefts of the vehicles. Marsh was arrested on Thursday in relation to the incident.
