Suspect Charged with ORC Felonies after Alleged Label-Switching

After Cottonwood (Arizona) police officers were called to the Walmart location in town on August 25, the information they gathered allowed them to make a felony arrest.

On August 25, officers were called to Walmart for a delayed report of a habitual shoplifter. An officer was provided paperwork and surveillance footage of Neal Allan Sacheck, 49, allegedly showing that he shoplifted and scanned UPC labels for less than the intended purchase price and placed items into Walmart bags without scanning them while at the self-checkout on at least three occasions.

The officer conducting the investigation learned Sacheck lives in Rimrock. He contacted the Yavapai County Sheriff’s Office to assist with locating Sacheck, who was arrested and now faces felony charges.
