Meanwhile, the other man faked a heart attack. Concerned customers looked on as the man with the cart left the store.

Deputies say the two men met up outside and left in the same vehicle.

A surveillance camera caught the whole act, leading to the arrests of 30-year-old Tarus Scott and 27-year-old Genard Dupree. They are charged with grand theft.
