A felony warrant was issued March 31 for a Sallisaw man accused of shoplifting at the city’s Walmart Supercenter.
Jeffrey Todd Gentry, 52, was charged with larceny in the Feb. 11 incident, in which witnesses told police the older white male had loaded a cart filled with $1,090.63 worth of items and pushed them out of the store without paying.
Gentry was also seen on video pushing the shopping cart into the store’s parking lot. A white SUV then pulled up to Gentry. A passenger got out of the vehicle and started loading some of the items in the car. The passenger, Randy Reece, was later stopped and questioned by detectives. Reece identified Gentry as the suspect who pushed the items out of the store.
Gentry’s bond was set at $5,000. The penalty for felony larceny of merchandise from a retailer is imprisonment in the Department of Corrections for up to two years and by a fine of up to $1,000.
