More employees armed with cameras confronted the men, causing them to abandon the goods and drive away in a U-Haul truck parked outside the store, Bergh said.
The men did not succeed in loading any merchandise into the U-Haul before escaping.
In a statement to WSBTV, Walmart said the company takes "the protection of our assets seriously and have numerous programs in place to address shoplifting, such as security cameras, technology, and associates in place to reduce crime in our stores, including checking receipts at the doors.
“In addition, we reach out to law enforcement as necessary as part of our ongoing commitment to meet our customers’ and associates’ expectations of a safe and enjoyable shopping experience.”
The men are still on the loose.
