Brownwood police arrested a man Monday on an allegation that he selected a 47-inch flat screen television in the electronics department of Wal-Mart and wheeled it out the door, unpaid for, in a shopping cart.
Officers made contact with the man after he walked across the parking lot and onto Belle Plain. Officer Zane Taylor arrested the man, identified as Lekurt Fisher, 21, of Brownwood, on a charge of theft and criminal trespass, police and jail records state.
