Police charged Billy D. Willis, 20, with third degree burglary in connection with a theft offense at Walmart.

Police say on Tuesday evening, officers were summoned to Walmart regarding a shoplifting complaint.  Upon arrival, officers were told that store employees observed Willis exit the store without paying for a 12-pack of beer.

Employees then detained Willis.  Police determined Willis had been issued a trespass warning and banned from the store on a previous occasion.  Police say his entry into the store to commit an alleged shoplifting offense after being banned from the premises resulted in the burglary charge against him.

Willis was lodged in the Madison County Detention Center.
