James Michael Jennings of Orange, Mass., was arrested Thursday at the Buena Vista Road WalMart, according to a Columbus Police Department report.
The arresting officer was Sherman Hayes. WalMart employee Simone Reyes observed Jennings select three DVD movies and take them to the restroom, the report indicates. A male employee followed him into the restroom and watched him take the movies out of their packaging.
Jennings, 27, then walked to the front of the store, bought cigarettes and left the store with the DVDs in his pants, the report states.
Reyes stopped Jennings and removed the movies. The total cost of the items was $84.92.
Jennings made no statements and was taken to the Muscogee County Jail.
