A Florida man found himself handcuffed after allegedly trying to steal items from a Walmart where dozens of police officers were holding an event.
The Osceola County Sheriff’s Office says a man they refer to as “Brad” was arrested at a St. Cloud Walmart after attempting to steal items while about 40 deputies attended a “shop with a Cop” event were in it. WTTV-TV reports.
“Seriously, we just can’t make this up,” the department posted on Facebook.
“Brad decided to steal from our good neighbors and partners at Walmart in St. Cloud while we were doing Shop With a Cop with the kids in our community. Bad news Brad!”
The post said the store was “packed with deputies, nearly 40, alongside the forensics team, the community services team, the CSOs, the OCSO majors and Sheriff Marcos R. Lopez.” Bad idea Brad.”
Deputies were at the Walmart store as part of an event where police officers with children are shopping for the holidays.
The department released a photo of “Brad” showing him with his hands tied behind his back and his pockets inside out.
The Facebook post also included photos of items linked to Brad, including a perfume bottle, gloves, what appears to be hedge trimmers, a syringe and a container with a plastic bag of unknown contents.
The Osceola County Sheriff’s Office did not immediately respond to a request for comment from Fox News Digital.
