After 1 year, big Walmart theft in Topeka unsolved

TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) -- Topeka police are still trying to find a man who walked into a Walmart more than a year ago and walked out with more than $250,000.

The Topeka Capital-Journal reports (http://bit.ly/13gILfp ) the brazen theft occurred about 3 a.m. on Nov. 26, 2011, when the store was busy with Black Friday shoppers.

The stocky white man with a shaved head simply walked into the manager's office and walked out with the money. He didn't threaten or confront anyone.

Topeka police Lt. Joe Perry said Tuesday he could not discuss specifics of the investigation. Police did say the man overcame security procedures to get behind certain doors to access the cash and receipts.

Walmart has offered $5,000 for information on the case, and Crime Stoppers offered $2,000.
