Police say employee helped man steal TVs

A Walmart greeter was arrested Tuesday after police say he had a hand in stealing two TVs from the store.

On April 16, Frederick Leon Gallimore drove to the Walmart at 7631 Gall Blvd. with a man whose identity is still unknown, a Zephyrhills Police report says. They parked the silver van at the south end of the parking lot.

Once inside, they split up, the report states. Gallimore, 34, clocked in and started his shift. The other man headed for the electronics section. He grabbed two LCD screen TVs, valued at $476, and headed for an exit, police said.

Gallimore, whose job is to check receipts from customers leaving the store, left his post. The other man walked out, the report says. Gallimore followed.

They walked together and loaded the TVs into the van, police said. Gallimore went back to work.

Gallimore was arrested on a felony charge of retail theft. He remained Wednesday in the Land O'Lakes jail in lieu of $2,000 bail.

A manager said Gallimore has been fired from Walmart.
