Raceland, La. - The Lafourche Parish Sheriff's Office has arrested a man who stole several laptop and tablet computers from a Raceland Walmart last month with the help of a security worker assigned to the store.
A police spokesman says it happened at the Walmart located at 4858 Highway 1 in Raceland.
Through an investigation, detectives learned that Anthony Hardnett, 27, a worker for a private security service company, was at the store installing new security cameras on August 7th.
He allegedly disconnected a security camera without authorization. On August 8th, an unknown male entered the store and stole 23 Apple iPads, nine other tablet-style computers, a laptop computer, and a desktop computer from the back warehouse area.
The total value of the 34 stolen items is around $12,000.
Detectives say Hardnett had no job-related reason or order to disconnect the camera, and surveillance video shows Hardnett appeared to be acting as a "lookout" during the theft.
Surveillance cameras also caught the suspect walking into a bathroom with empty duffel bags, and then walking out with full bags.
Hardnett was arrested for Felony Theft and refused to cooperate with investigators. He was booked into the Lafourche Parish Detention Center on and was released on August 28 after posting $10,000 bond.
Detectives are now trying to identify the suspect caught on camera. Anyone who can identify the suspect, or anyone with information on this case, is asked to contact Bayou Region Crime Stoppers at 1-800-743-7433.
