Police, Walmart nab men and recover stolen equipment

Police arrested two West Virginia men Monday after Walmart loss prevention accused them of stealing merchandise.

Tyler Fisher, 28, is charged with two misdemeanor offenses: theft and possession of criminal tools; and his friend, Brandon Mayhew, 25, is charged with two felony offenses of theft and possession of criminal tools.

A loss prevention officer told police the men were caught using knives to cut open merchandise and conceal it. When officers approached the men it was apparent they had stuffed items in their sweatshirts, according to a police report.

Police say Fisher had a Samsung Galaxy 3 tablet, valued at $159, concealed inside his sweatshirt and a razor blade, which was used to retrieve the item from its package.

When police searched Mayhew they say they found three Apple iPads and a pocket knife. The iPads are valued at $1,147.

Police also discovered Mayhew had an active warrant through Niles Police Department for theft.

Loss prevention showed police the vehicle the two men used, which was the same vehicle seen leaving the store with stolen merchandise on Sunday. Police found a duffle bag with four computer tablets and four Nintendo DS units inside the vehicle.

The vehicle was towed and the items were logged into evidence.

Fisher and Mayhew were both transferred to Mahoning County Jail following their arrest. Both were arraigned in Mahoning County Court in Boardman on Tuesday morning.

There next court appearances have not be set.
