A man was arrested after he allegedly tried to steal from a Walmart in Florida while the store was filled with dozens of police officers.
Osceola County Sheriff's Office, near Orlando, published a post on its Facebook page on Thursday saying it had arrested a man after he was caught trying to steal from a Walmart in St. Cloud.
The incident happened during a "Shop with a Cop" event with local children. "Bad news, Brad!" the office wrote, adding: "Seriously we just can't make this up."
The Walmart store was filled with nearly 40 deputies alongside the forensics team, the community services officers, the OCSO Majors, and Sheriff Marcos R. Lopez.
"Bad idea, Brad," the post ended.
Other images showed the suspect handcuffed, with images of gloves, perfume, and other items appearing to be linked to an attempted theft.
Osceola County Sheriff's Office didn't immediately respond to Insider's request for more information about the incident.
Theft at major retailers has spiked this year, with rival Target saying it has lost $400 million to "inventory shrink" in 2022.
