Deputies: Hudson man packed cart with $424 in goods, left without paying

HUDSON — A 40-year-old man is accused of filling his shopping bags with $424 in merchandise at the Walmart Supercenter, then pushing his cart out of the store without paying.

A security guard at the store on U.S. 19 told Pasco County sheriff's deputies that the man pulled the bags from his pocket, filled them, then walked past all the cash registers about 8:30 p.m. Sunday "with no intention of paying for the items."

Kevin Duane Pelphrey, of 13224 Neptune Drive, who is unemployed, admitted to deputies that he bagged the items and walked out, the sheriff's report said.

Pelphrey was charged with retail grand theft and taken to the Pasco County jail, where he was released without having to post bail.
