The story is riveting. Really.Two men allegedly coordinate several heists of local Wal-Marts by impersonating employees and loading expensive electronic equipment in their truck.

They got caught in Summerville, the small town where everybody obviously knows everybody.

What struck us was this line in the Post and Courier story:

They were wearing Wal-Mart shirts and pants, and one of them had a name tag identifying himself as Will.

We were in Wal-Mart yesterday — sometimes we’re in there twice a week — and we’ve never noticed what “Wal-Mart” pants look like. A quick Internet search revealed the supsects’ last known costume:

Basically, it’s the khakis that we wear to work nearly every day, not that there’s anything wrong with that.

[image-2]Oh, and my next favorite part of the story is when the police report plays along with the “Will” name in the next graph.

They were wearing Wal-Mart shirts and pants, and one of them had a name tag identifying himself as Will.

The female worker asked the pair what they were doing. Will told her he worked at the Goose Creek Wal-Mart, according to the report.

Of course, the man’s name was not Will, so it’s curious that they just didn’t refer to him as “the man” in the next graph. Lets say, for instance, he was in a Jack Sparrow costume instead of a Wal-Mart outfit. The report wouldn’t have read, “… one of them was dressed as Jack Sparrow.” and then “Jack Sparrow told her he worked at the Goose Creek Wal-Mart,” would it?
