Porter, July 29 – The Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office is investigating an incident that occurred at the Wal-Mart located at 23561 US-59 in Porter, Texas. A video surfaced on social media depicting a group of teenagers engaged in a vulgar act inside the store.
After the video began circulating on social media, citizens contacted Wal-Mart about the incident. Upon reviewing their security video, it was confirmed that one of the suspects urinated on a shelf.
Upon further investigation, it was discovered that the incident occurred on July 27, 2019, and that the suspects also attempted to steal a case of beer. They were stopped by Wal-Mart loss prevention as they attempted to leave the store, but were let go.
It was unknown to Wal-Mart staff at that time that one of the suspects had urinated on a shelf near the beverage aisle.
This is an active investigation, and Detectives are still attempting to identify the individuals involved. Charges will be filed when the suspects are identified.
Lieutenant Scott Spencer of the Sheriff’s Office added, “The Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office will not tolerate these types of vulgar acts. Tampering with consumer products is not only morally reprehensible, but can be a felony offense by which offenders will be charged. Anyone with information about this incident or the individuals involved is urged to contact the Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office at 936-760-5800, and reference case #19A243994.”
