Cairo Walmart burglarized on Christmas Day

THOMASVILLE — Someone is sure to end up on Santa’s next naughty list after a foiled burglary.

On Christmas Day at around 12:16 a.m., officers working security at Cairo’s Walmart, located at 361 8th Ave. NE, reported a burglary by forced entry.

Deputies Timothy Shawn Poitevint and Deputy Kelvin Nixon were working the security at Walmart since the store closed for the holiday. Poitevint said he and Nixon were sitting in front of the store when they heard an alarm going off from inside the store.

One deputy went around to the west side of the building and the other went to the east side. Poitevint said he saw a subject crouched down behind the storage trailers on the east side of the building. When he tried to make contact, the subject, carrying a crow bar, fled north through a drainage ditch.

Officers discovered the fence on the east side of the building had been entered. A child’s electric car was found outside the fence. They made entry through the damaged fence and found that the subject had pried the glass doors open that lead into the store from the Garden Center.

No other subjects were found in the building when searched by the officers. However, the officers discovered a roll-up door had been forced open that led to the pharmacy section of the store. The door had been pried and dented.

There were several boxes of cold tablets laying on the floor.

 No arrests have been made at this time.

Anyone with information about the crime is urged to contact the Cairo Police Department at (229) 377-7381.
