Thief fakes heart attack so friend can steal toys —VIDEO

LAKE WALES, Fla. — Authorities say a man faked a heart attack inside a Florida Wal-Mart store so his friend could steal toys.

The men — 30-year-old Tarus Scott and 27-year-old Genard Dupree — were arrested Tuesday on grand theft charges.

The Polk County Sheriff’s office says the men filled a shopping cart with a motorized power wheel Barbie car, Leap Frog tablet and a Barbie Glam vacation house. They walked through the store together.

Video surveillance shows Dupree on the floor near the store entrance, clutching his chest. As concerned citizens checked on him, Scott walked out of the store with the cart. Once Scott was outside, Dupree got up and walked out. They left in a silver SUV, but deputies caught up with them.

It’s not known whether they have attorneys.
