Police: Low Wal-Mart prices not enough for these robbers

Posted: Updated:
HENDERSON, N.C. -

Wal-Mart promises "always low prices," but police say that wasn't enough for three Henderson men.

Police say the trio are part of a theft ring that has stolen more than $150,000 in items from Wal-Marts across North Carolina.

Officers said they identified all three suspects involved in two larcenies at Chatham County's newest Wal-Mart on 15-501.

Arrested Wednesday was James Drenell Branch, 26, of Henderson. Damien Lamar Bullock, 20, of Henderson and Christopher Eugene Bullock, 29, of Henderson are still sought by authorities. Each is wanted on two counts of felony larceny, shoplifting and conspiracy to commit felony larceny.

Authorities believe the three are connected to a string of thefts at Wal-Marts, where robbers struck during the early morning hours between 1:30 a.m. and 3 a.m. and smashed and grabbed electronic devices.
