Smallest thefts receive attention at local business

Ada —

Somebody’s always watching, it seems.

If Walmart security isn’t paying attention, the cameras  are and not much seems to be escaping these eyes.

Even the smallest of thefts deserved attention, employees believe. So when Norma Sanabria allegedly decided to conceal a birthday card in her purse, Walmart employees told police they noticed. When later, she allegedly opened a package of razors and placed one of them into her purse, they noticed that, too.

The birthday card and the razor were valued at $12.96, but that was enough for employees to make a citizens arrest and for Ada Police Department patrol officer Kylor Pool to take Sanabria into custody and give her a ride to   Pontotoc County Justice Center.

Pool said Sanabria paid for several items at the cash register, just not the razor and birthday card.
