A man that was previously banned from all Wal-Mart locations was arrested for attempting to steal over $500 worth of goods from a Baton Rouge Wal-Mart while dressed in full military gear.
Twenty three year old Keyon Pullins never served in the U.S. military. However, that didn’t stop him from attempting to use a fabricated story about being in the military to convince Wal-Mart management and security to let him go after being caught trying to steal over $500 worth of alcohol and ammunition. Pullins reportedly pleaded with managers to “let him go about his business” due to being dressed in full military uniform. A police report from the incident states:
“The managers stated that they would not do so[let him go], so [Pullins] attempts to leave. When he did so, managers grabbed him by the back of his uniform and pulled him back into the store…[Pullins] began to scream and cuss at the managers stating that he was in the military and ‘to just let him go about his business.'”
Pullins reportedly attempted to walk out of the store with five bottles of Ciroc Vodka, five cases of Crown Royal, one bottle of Grey Goose Vodka, and eight packs of 12 gauge shotgun shells at the time of the incident.
Pullins was sent into a rage after employees prevented him from leaving. He threatened to “get a bomb from ISIS and blow this place up,” if his demands were not met. Police were then called in and confirmed that Pullins did not serve in the military at anytime in his life.
The deputies that responded to the call claim that Pullins stated that he received the official military uniform from a “ranking supervisor” that instructed him not to wear it under any circumstances. He is currently in police custody at the East Baton Rouge Parish Prison.
