My goodness! Where is the security? Now we cannot even go shopping and feel safe. I hope those that were stuck will be okay. I hope that the offenders are caught and given the justice they deserve!!

Angela..realistically it would be impossible for security to check everything on the walmart shelves. As to who the culprits may be? Search the haystack for that needle. If the thugs are caught, it will be because somebody tells on them
