CHESTERFIELD COUNTY, Va. — A Virginia man dressed in a Walmart uniform stole four televisions from a store in Chesterfield County, according to officials.

According to police, the man was wearing a blue Walmart vest. As shown on surveillance video, he placed four HDTVs in a shopping cart and walked out of the store through an emergency exit.
