A Uniontown man who was already banned from all Walmart stores was arrested Tuesday at the Fairlawn Walmart and charged with criminal trespassing and theft after walking out of the store in a new pair of boots.

Fairlawn police were called at 5:18 p.m. Tuesday by a Walmart loss prevention agent to report he had a shoplifter in custody in the security office.

The agent told police he saw the 39-year-old man shopping in the shoe department. "(He) selected a pair of black boots valued at $40.46, placed the boots on his feet and exited the store without paying for the merchandise,” according to the police report.

Police said admitted to the theft after being read his rights. The Walmart agent checked the stores' history and discovered the man was banned from all Walmart stores on Sept. 4.

Police charged him with theft, a first-degree misdemeanor, and criminal trespass, a fourth-degree misdemeanor. The man was then released with a summons to appear in Akron Municipal court.
The boots were retained by Walmart, and the man "remains banned from all Walmart stores indefinitely," according to police.
