Queensbury Walmart Burglarized! NYS police ask, can you identify?
There is a trend that amazes me. It’s not a fashion trend or the latest social media challenge. The trend is for people to load up their baskets with a variety of items, some high-priced, and walk right out the front door without paying. The trend is happening right here in the Capital Region.
The New York State Police are asking for your help in identifying a man and woman who allegedly stole nearly $2,000 worth of merchandise from Walmart in Queensbury.
At around 10.30pm on Friday February 25, CCTV recorded two individuals exiting Walmart on State Route 9 in Queensbury with what appears to be a shopping cart full of unpaid items.
These two individuals are suspected of theft of goods worth $1,900. If you look closely at one of the photos, you will see toys for a young child, a shirt and other items.
In the next two photos you will see the vehicle in which they arrived and left. The truck appears to be a gray or silver Toyota Tacoma extended cab with obvious driver side damage.
If you have any information on the identity of these individuals, please contact Queensbury State Police at (518) 583-7000 and reference case #10710857.
Is this the “new normal” or has it been happening all along, but we just become aware of it? Stories like these with store and eyewitness videos are popping up more and more since the pandemic began.
