Walmart Burglars

PRESCOTT, Ariz. — Police in Arizona say two Walmart employees burglarized the store where they worked to pay for a car and a sex change operation.

Police arrested 23-year-old Spencer Danger Cullen and 19-year-old Adriano Valdes Altiveros III on Friday.

Reinhardt says Altiveros reportedly told detectives he stole cash to buy a car. He says Cullen told police she stole the money to go forward with a sex change operation.

Cullen and Altiveros remain in custody. The Yavapai County public defender‘s office would not say Wednesday whether the pair had been appointed attorneys.

EUGENE, Ore. – Sandy McMillin and her sister Karla Vogt went to Walmart on Sunday to buy sour cream, chips and coffee creamer.

The temperature that day hit 90 degrees, so McMillin threw on a turquoise bikini and a pair of shorts.

She said five minutes into her shopping trip while in the clothing aisle, a store employee told her to put on a shirt or leave, saying the swimsuit violated health codes.

“I was horrified,” McMillin told KVAL News. “I am embarrassed.”

“We just walked in, straight over to the clothing,” Vogt said. “It’s wrong. If you don’t like the way someone looks, don’t look at them.”

McMillin said employees then escorted her and her sister out of the store.

“I hadn’t done anything obnoxious or outlandish,” McMillin said.

Walmart spokeswoman Ashley Hardie told KVAL News that McMillin has it all wrong.

Hardie said customers complained and McMillin verbally abused people in the store. But Hardie said McMillin was was never escorted outside.

“We can understand her frustration. It was not our intent to offend the customer, and we have apologized to her,” Hardie said. “We have also reinforced with our associates our expectations of how to handle these matters.”

McMillin said that is not good enough and that she will never shop at Walmart again.

NEW YORK » Wal-Mart Stores Inc. is now renting and streaming movies online, many the same day they come out on DVD, in a second bid for a share of popular movie rental and streaming website Netflix Inc.‘s business.

The world’s largest retailer bought video-streaming service Vudu.com 18 months ago and Tuesday started offering 20,000 titles that can be viewed on almost any device with Internet access, from PCs to televisions to Sony‘s PlayStation3 and other Blu-Ray disc players.

Movies are available at Walmart.com to rent for $1 to $5.99 or to purchase for $4.99 and up.

Wal-Mart, based in Bentonville, Ark., has tested the movie-rental waters before. It previously offered a DVD-by-mail service but it stopped that service in February 2010.
