SEGUIN — Some people will steal anything, and it doesn’t get much lower than the theft reported recently at Wal-Mart.
Store employees reported someone stole several statues of Our Lady of Guadalupe from in front of the store’s garden center Thursday.
The statues, made of weighted plastic and painted, are around three feet tall. They were marked down from $49.83 to $37 as part of a clearance special, but even that price wasn’t low enough to suit whoever took them, police say.
The only description available was that the suspect was a Hispanic male. Nothing was known of the vehicle he was in or whether he worked alone in the heist.
Seguin Police Detective Sgt. Johnny San Miguel said it was unclear just how many of the statues were stolen.
He said he would work hard to find out who committed the theft.
“I hope I catch him,” Miguel said.
But either way, the thief will have to live with his conscience — if he has one.
