Marietta police reports show that in the first six days of August there have been five theft arrests, one theft from a cart, and an arrest of an irate customer at Walmart, the city's (and the country's) largest retailer.
Yesterday, A Warren Township man reported that someone had just stolen his newly purchased prescription medication from his cart. Security video showed the suspect also stole camping equipment before leaving the store. He’s described as a white male with brown hair and a cast on his left arm-and-hand.
On Monday, a 20-year-old Watertown man and a Front Street teenager were arrested for stealing $62 in various items, all of which were recovered.
On Saturday, police were called to Walmart when a female customer trying to return a cell phone became angry with store employees, yelling and using foul language. The 49-year-old Virginia Street resident was arrested for criminal trespass after she ignored officers’ requests then orders to leave the store. She was later released on a personal recognizance bond.
Last Friday, two males, ages 24 and 16 from Marietta, were arrested for theft after shoplifting two speakers and a bicycle inner tube valued at $87. 

And on August 1, a 39-year-old Reno woman was nabbed by Walmart security in the store parking lot after she placed several bras in her purse, then filled a cart with a vacuum cleaner and dog food worth $219 and walked out the front door without paying.
