Woman from Michigan is detained after failing to scan every item at the Walmart self-checkout

After allegedly stealing merchandise from Walmart by failing to scan all of her products at the self-checkout, a woman from Michigan is now facing charges.

TeddyJo Marie Fliam, 34, was allegedly utilizing the self-checkout at a Walmart in Alpena County when loss prevention personnel observed she wasn’t scanning each item. According to a Fox 2 report, when approached by a loss prevention worker, Fliam became irritated, denied skipping products, and then departed the store.

After reviewing its CCTV footage in response to the incident, the shop discovered that Fliam had stolen more than $1,000 worth of goods from Walmart by failing to scan them since April.
