POLICE: DVD Thieves Caught Red-Handed

Thousands of dollars in DVDs were stolen from a Wal-Mart store in Eastern Carolina and police say they nabbed the thieves red-handed.

New Bern police say the man and woman were stopped by store security Friday afternoon at the Wal-Mart on Martin Luther King, Jr. Boulevard.

Police say they found 70 DVDs in an empty box and then found another 50 DVDs in their car. Police say the thefts were done on two different days.

Salina Woodall of Four Oaks and Richard Colter of Selma have been charged with two counts of felony larceny. Woodall is also charged with possession of drug paraphernalia.

Police say the DVDs were worth $3,000. Both Woodall and Colter are in jail on $20,000 bonds.

    To MrT, I would like to see that happen but it's doubtful that it will happen. To Al, that is a true statement right there, unless if someone were to die as a baby and they would not know a thing. Send these DVD stealing scumbags behind bars for at least 20 years and see if they will do such a thing again.

    How could the box be empty if it had 70 DVDs in it? Glad they were caught.

    This is the reason why prices are going through the roof for products at the stores. When Morons steal and shop lift it causes the loss prevention insurance to go up! Not only that but the sales taxes! Oh and by the way we have 3 things in life that are guaranteed (1) Death,(2) Taxes and (3) Thieves. Did I mention that Politicians are apart of this equation???

    They should each get 30 lashes and 6 months of community service mopping floors and cleaning bathrooms at Walmart. While wearing a sign that says I am a theif, I stole DVDs frome this here Walmart. I help to make the price you pay go up.
