Crook attempts to steal from Walmart

Huntsville Area Crime Stoppers is looking for this man. Huntsville Area Crime Stoppers is looking for this man.

As crooks go, he won't rank near the top of any lists, but he did have an escape plan as he went running and jumping from the crime scene.

Madison Police say the crook decided to organize his own little sales event at the Walmart on Madison Boulevard. His "sale" was 100 percent off everything in his shopping cart.

They said he put a few items, including a 46-inch TV, into his cart and attempted to wheel right out of the store without paying.

When employees confronted him, he left the cart and ran.

As he ran out of the store, there was a black, GMC pickup truck waiting for him. Police said the crook dived into the back of that truck.

If you recognize the truck or perhaps know the truck driver or truck "diver,"  make the anonymous call to 256-53-CRIME or send an anonymous text or e-mail by clicking on the Huntsville Area Crime Stoppers link.

There's a reward of up to a thousand dollars.
