What happens when you steal from Walmart?
Stealing or attempting to steal from a store like Walmart on a grand scale will most likely not be a winning prospect for the thief. This is a company, and industry that knows people steal from them, and their security is almost Las Vegas casino level. Though due to size and level of chaos, Walmart might be seen as an easy place to shoplift from. Know that there are eyes in the sky looking for sticky fingers, as well as plain clothed security guards keeping vigil as well. If caught, you could be facing a bevvy of charges.
