Sassy Liberty AMERICA’S FREEDOM FIGHTERS –

Tis the season for thieves and liars it seems and this year is no exception. In the latest installment of “the People of Walmart” we meet 25-year-old Florida waitress – Cheyenne Amber West. She got a “steal” of a deal when she purchased more than $1,800 worth of electronics for a whopping $3.70!

But alas her thriftiness was not all that it appeared….

It seems West swapping the barcodes on the electronics in question with the price tag of items in the clearance section of the Vero Beach Walmart in Florida. As a result of her acts of blatant theft and deception, she was arrested.  When asked what possessed her to change the barcodes and think that she could get away with it, West told the local police she was buying the expensive gifts for her family.

According to the arrest affidavit, West stated –

“I am just trying to get gifts for my son that I cannot afford. The computer is for my husband. Since he just got me a Coach purse, I figured he deserved something nice, as well.”

I guess someone forgot to explain to West that Walmart deserves to be paid for their merchandise as well.

It is unclear at which point West was apprehended by the loss prevention officer, who watched her and her mother pick out the items and wheel the unpaid merchandise to the exit in a shopping cart.  The loss prevention officer told local police that he observed West and another woman “shopping” for their items.  They picked out an HP Omen computer, video game controllers, and various other electronics merchandise totaling approximately $1,824.00 in the electronics department of the store.  West then went to the clearance department and began removing tags.  She then proceeded back to the electronics department where she used those tags to cover barcodes and ended up with a purchase of items that rang up for just $3.70 at the self-checkout. West rang up her very own five-fingered discount!

West has been charged with felony grand theft and felony shoplifting.  Her bail was set at $3,000.00 and she is now free.  The other woman was later identified as West’s mother and was not charged in the incident. West’s mother stated to police of her daughter’s actions and subsequent arrest –

“I know what my daughter was doing, but I never walked out with anything, and she is just trying to get gifts for her son.”

According to a recent University of Leicester study, retail theft involving self-checkout lanes is a fairly common occurrence. The study used data from 12 million shopping trips in four different countries, one of which was the United States.  Researchers discovered that retailers that utilize a self-service checkout experience an average of 4% loss from theft, nearly double the rate of those that do not use a self-service checkout option.  The study states the sense of risk is reduced due to the removal of human contact throughout the shopping process, allowing people to avoid facing human interaction while they are stealing.
