We are seeing more and more young people arrested for stealing from local stores, including Walmart in Tallman: We can help you or your child if an arrest occurs.

You see that clothing item in the store, you really want it. But it’s overpriced, and buying it is out of your range. In a moment of weakness, your judgment flies out of the window, and you take the item off the rack or shelf, and walk around the store pretending to browse. Then you slip the item into your bag, and foolishly think no one is watching. But, you couldn’t be more wrong, because the tiny camera above you is being used by someone hidden behind closed doors. As you work your way out of the store, you suddenly feel a tap on your shoulder, and are asked by someone in plain clothes to stop and come with them back into the store. You are arrested for the crime of larceny and now have to see a judge. We can help you. Call us immediately, as handling a larceny case is not so simple. Don’t let one bad decision wreck your future. Call us to discuss your options, and let us help you prevent a criminal conviction.
