Lexington Police said two men were hauling out thousands of dollars worth of merchandise from the North Park Walmart late Monday night when officers met them at the door.

Police said Tommy Doyle, Jr., 38, and Gerald Johnson, 50, were each charged with two counts of theft.

Police said the two first stole several laptops from the store on August 14. When the two came back Monday, loss prevention officers recognized them and called police.

Officers watched on surveillance as they broke into a locked cabinet to steal more laptops and then covered them with clothing inside a shopping cart.

According to police, Doyle and Johnson tried to execute the same plan they had used before, where one of the men distracts the door greeter while the other pushes the merchandise-filled cart outside.

However, this time police were waiting outside.

Police said between the two incidents, the men have stolen more than $3,000 worth of items.
