El Jobean couple arrested in WalMart theft
MURDOCK, Fla. - Charlotte County deputies arrested an El Jobean couple for stealing a $578 television from the Murdock WalMart thanks to alert employees.
22-year-old Teara Anne Sander and 32-year-old Terry Wayne Davis, Jr. both face charges of felony grand theft.
Deputies responded Tuesday to the Murdock WalMart after security was given information from the North Port WalMart concerning a recent television theft in that store.
Murdock WalMart Security had enough information and came up with names and photographs of Sander and Davis and distributed a flyer to store associates.
Security was notified that by an employee that she saw the subjects on the flyer that may have gotten away with a television earlier this month. Security reviewed surveillance footage for that day and saw the subjects enter the store and put a 47-inch LG LED 3D television in a cart.
Davis exited the store with their two small children while Sander actually stopped to ask for assistance in loading it into their car.
Deputies later caught up to the couple at a nearby Target where they say Sander admitted to taking the TV and it was at their El Jobean home. She said she was willing to get the stolen TV and give it back to WalMart. Deputies went into Target and located Davis and was confronted about the stolen TV. Davis said, “I don’t know what you are talking about.”
Both were arrested and taken to the Charlotte County Jail.
