Surveillance: Florida Man Fakes Heart Attack to Steal Toys, Deputies Say


LAKE WALES, Fla. (WESH) -- Deputies say a man faked a heart attack to create a diversion while his friend walked out of a Lake Wales Wal-Mart with stolen goods.

Polk County deputies say one man faked a heart attack at Wal-Mart while his friend walked out with toys.

The two men are seen walking into the store together on Tuesday. One man loads up a cart with a motorized power wheel Barbie car, a Leap Frog tablet and a Barbie Glam vacation house and heads toward the exit.

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.
