2 charged in theft of Lego set

MOULTRIE — Two men were apprehended Friday after they allegedly tried to steal an item and return it April 19.

David Allen Faulk, 38, of 842 Highway 319 S., Lot 7, was charged with theft by deception and theft by receiving stolen property. Johnny Wade Guinn, 38, of 842 Highway 319 S., Lot 7, was charged with theft by shoplifting.

A Moultrie police officer was called to Wal-Mart on South Veterans Parkway about 1:25 p.m. April 19 about a theft. The officer spoke with a store employee, and it was alleged that Guinn too a Lego toy set, valued at about $130, and put it into his buggy.

He allegedly walked around the store with the toy set for several minutes before  going behind a rack and bagging the toy set himself. He then was seen walking to the front of the store and then out, and allegedly passed the set to a second man, identified as Faulk, police reports stated.

Faulk then allegedly brought the set back into the store and returned it at the customer service desk. He was given a gift card, and the officer was able to get Faulk’s license information for the return to be completed.

Warrants were taken on both Guinn and Faulk, and they were placed under arrest Friday and were taken to Colquitt County Jail.
