Man tried syringe diversion to steal vacuum cleaner: Police
A North Carolina man planted syringes in various products in a Wal-Mart in hopes of distracting store staff from his plans to steal a vacuum cleaner, according to police cited in this report:
Kyle Brandon Sumrall, 26, of 541 Flack St., was charged this week by the Eden Police Department with sticking syringes into products at the Walmart Supercenter in Eden.
According to police, Sumrall stuck syringes into a package of ground beef and a box of cotton swabs during visits to the store on Saturday and Sunday.
Police said he showed the tampered products to an employee to create a diversion so he could steal a vacuum cleaner.
Sumrall was arrested and charged Monday with two counts each of creating a hoax within a public building, injury to personal property and larceny.
