Man buys Plasma TV from Wal-Mart for 5 bucks

June 29th, 2007 at 2:02 PM

That floating smiley face must have been drinking right before it knocked recent prices down at a Monroe, LA Wal-Mart.  Wait…nope…it was 23-year-old Chandon L. Simms who thought he could simply (and allegedly) put a price tag from a $4.88 item on a $984 plasma TV and run it through self-checkout without anyone noticing. Loss Prevention did, and when questioned, showed officers a receipt from a different purchase for the same model TV and told them that he purchased a TV from the West Monroe store and planned to return that one and keep the one he purchased for only $4.88 from the Monroe store. He was then arrested and booked into the Ouachita Correctional Center. Missed it by thaaaaaat much.
