Memphis Walmart shoplifted by over 20 armed suspects in 13 minutes

MEMPHIS, Tenn. (WMC) – The Memphis Police Department is investigating a mass shoplifting incident that took place in Whitehaven Sunday night. MPD says approximately 22 armed suspects with face masks stole multiple items from the Walmart on Elvis Presley Boulevard.

Surveillance video shows the suspects pulling up to the automotive section around 8:50 p.m. in about 20 cars, including Infiniti, Dodge, Chrysler, and Kia models.

Police say the suspects exited the cars and broke a window to the automotive entrance, where they then entered the store.

A Walmart security officer told police that he recognized one of the suspects from 201 Poplar, who instead entered through the front door.

Police say the suspects stole speakers, two flat-screen TVs valued at £500 each, shop vacs, car batteries, two Black Panther scooters, and more.

By the time MPD arrived at the scene at 9:03 p.m., all suspects had driven from the scene. None were detained.
