LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) – A Louisville man has been charged with stealing approximately $9,000 in merchandise from electronics stores over a period of 15 months.

Wallace N. Sanders, Jr., 50, is facing six counts of shoplifting from various Best Buy stores. The warrant says Sanders was observed taking the merchandise on several occasions, but store personnel were never able to catch him because a car was waiting outside for him.

Sanders would take video games, DVDs and tablets, place them under his jacket and leave the store. He was finally caught and arrested on February 20. Police say he admitted to the theft in a recorded statement.

In a separate case, Sanders is charged with theft by deception. On May 1, Sanders is accused of going into the Walmart at 7100 Raggard Road, taking merchandise from the shelf and bringing it to the customer service desk for a refund. The warrant says Sanders was given a store gift card for the value of the items, $74.18.
