Father & Son Arrested For Walmart Theft

It didn’t take police long to find three men wanted for stealing thousands of dollars in electronics and tools from a Walmart.
After we showed surveillance video of the crime Tuesday night on 27 NEWSFIRST at 11, London police say they received more than 20 calls identifying the suspects. Wednesday, police in Laurel County arrested Billy Ramey, Billy Ramey Jr. and David Scott Fields. All three men are charged with theft.
Police also recovered the stolen goods.
Investigators say Ramey Jr. committed similar thefts in Madison and Pulaski counties.

    I know 2 of the 3 men in this case, and believe me they are the lowest form of scum that there is. If there is any justice in this world, the court system will put them away for a long time...Since the 3 have been arrested maybe Walmart wont have to go bankrupt..if and when they get out...it wont stop....I just hope something will be learned from this...look out all you other stores...once a thief always a thief....its a career for the son...even referred to as a JOB

    The title of this news story should have been "The Three Stooges."
