Brenda Guadalupe wanted to fool Walmart employees and ended up in jail

Perhaps she didn’t think through what she was doing or the consequences she would face. A woman identified as Brenda Guadalupe Tovar tried to fool the employees at a Walmart store in Texas, but the ‘trick’ she wanted to play ended up putting her behind bars, police authorities reported.

Local newspaper, the Laredo Morning Times reported on Tuesday, November 23, that Brenda Guadalupe Tovar, 36, ended up in jail for allegedly replacing price tags on cosmetics with fake tags showing cheaper prices.

Brenda Guadalupe was arrested and charged with removing the price tags. According to the aforementioned newspaper, officers from the Laredo Police Department responded to a report at 3.53 in the afternoon on Saturday at the Walmart Supercenter located in the 2600 block of Northeast Bob Bullock Loop.

Loss prevention staff at that Walmart store told law enforcement that a woman, later identified as Brenda Guadalupe, was trying to pay for cosmetics using fake price tags. They had prices that did not correspond to the items that she wanted to take.

In an isolated event, that occurred a few months ago, two women were charged for the theft of many items in several Walmart stores across the United States. The amount stolen exceeded $100,000, authorities indicated at the end of June.

Fox 10 Phoenix noted that two women were arrested after authorities said they spent months stealing more than $100,000 worth of merchandise from Walmart stores in several western states, including Arizona.

The suspects were identified as Mary Garcia, 47, and Melinda Rodriguez, 38, who were arrested on June 17 and later faced multiple charges of organized retail theft, according to the Mesa Police Department.

An investigation into the reported thefts began in March this year when Walmart’s loss prevention team noticed a, “series of suspicious transactions,” involving a scanning app at the store, Fox 10 Phoenix explained. For more information read this article.
