TOWN OF LOCKPORT — A man was charged by the Niagara County Sheriff's Office on Monday with helping another male steal items from Walmart.

According to the NCSO report, Joseph Thompson arrived in a blue Chevrolet with another male around 6:12 p.m. The pair walked around the store putting items in a shopping cart. Thompson then allegedly stood in front of the other male while the other man put the items from the cart into a Walmart bag.

"After everything was bagged the unknown male pushed the cart with merchandise in it past all points of purchase," the report said. Walmart's security chief stopped the male, who then fled without the cart, getting back into the blue Chevy and leaving.

Walmart security then saw Thompson in the parking lot and pointed him out to patrol. Thompson denied any involvement and said he had walked to the the store. However, "patrol observed Thompson getting out of the suspect vehicle on the Walmart security video."

Thompson was charged with sixth-degree conspiracy and taken to Niagara County Jail  on $250 bail. He is to appear in Town of Lockport Court on Thursday.
