VALDOSTA, GA (WALB) - Police say three women tried to walk out of a Valdosta Walmart with more than $2,000 worth of merchandise Monday night.

38-year-old Verna London of Jacksonville is charged with shoplifting from the Walmart off Norman Drive. Police say she had two accomplices in the crime; One female juvenile who is in police custody, and a third adult woman who ran from the store.

Workers approached the women after they tried convincing the register clerk that they were returning the items, not stealing them. 

"Food, an LCD television, three computers, and some other merchandise," were among the items taken, said Valdosta Police Cmdr. Eugene Bell. "They tried to take them out of one box and put them into another box. They tried to say that the computers were for--that they were trying to bring the computers back."

All three women ran out of the store, but police caught London and her juvenile crime-mate before they even made it out of the parking lot.

An investigation is underway to find their third accomplice.
