FOX2 in St. Louis reports that a man walked into a Collinsville, IL, Walmart in the wee hours of the morning yesterday. He then managed to sneak into the store’s drop ceiling and, like Judd Nelson in The Breakfast Club, make his way to the space just above a room where the store holds its cash.This room has a drywalled ceiling, so the man had so use a saw to cut a hole.“He tried to cut in there with a saw,” a the Collinsville police officer tells FOX2. “He was sawing through the ceiling, apparently to drop down into the offices. One of the cashiers went in there to make change or whatever.”Because it’s not exactly easy to saw drywall without making a sound (and presumably kicking up some debris), the employee in the room below noticed. That employee told the manager, who called the police.Realizing he had been caught mid-burglary, the man abandoned his unasked-for renovation work and fled.“They heard him scampering through there like a rat and he got out,” says the officer. “He crawled into the ceiling and through there with people working. So he`s pretty bold.”
It happened late last month when the 83-year-old victim walked into a Wal-Mart located at 2897 Veteran’s Memorial Parkway and was met by a white female and a black male. The white female told the victim her job was to help elderly shoppers by locating the items they wished to purchase.
After the victim allowed the suspect to assist her with shopping, the suspect then told the black male to wait in the car.
After paying for the items, the two women walked out to the victim’s car, which police say was parked in the second row, second spot. When the victim wasn’t looking, the suspect grabbed her wallet out of her purse and left the scene.
