ST. CLOUD, Fla. - A man was likely unaware of the number of Florida deputies that were inside a Walmart store in St. Cloud when he reportedly "decided to steal," the Osceola County Sheriff's Office said in a Facebook post Thursday.
In the post, a man – referred to by the sheriff's office as Brad – was caught allegedly trying to steal from the store filled with nearly 40 deputies conducting Shop With a Cop – a holiday shopping event that pairs local children with a law enforcement officer for a shopping spree leading up to Christmas.
The sheriff's office shared a video of the holiday shopping event online, which clearly showed multiple law enforcement officers dressed in uniform:
"Seriously we just can't make this up," the post stated.
It's unclear what Brad allegedly tried to take from the store. "Bad idea, Brad," the post added.
