3 behind bars after Walmart gift card theft

GAINESVILLE, Fla. (WCJB) - Gainesville police say they have a trio of thieves behind bars for working together to steal $4,000 worth of gift cards from the Walmart on North East 12th Avenue.

Police say Terence Doston brought 8 Visa gift cards worth $500 each to the register.

According to police, that's when Denzel Ingram distracted the cashier by asking to see other merchandise while Doston somehow cashed out the sale as if they paid with cash.

Police then say the pair left the store where Clarence Jones was waiting in a vehicle acting as a look out.

The 3 were later found and placed under arrest. They all face theft related charges.
