Employees said Tyler Henry, 19, filled a shopping cart with $2,500 in merchandise, including food, clothing and other items, police spokesman Rodney Brown said.

Henry reportedly tried to leave without paying, but was confronted by employees. When he couldn’t come up with a receipt, he left. 

Brown said that Henry returned to the store the next day, and the staff called law enforcement. Officers contacted Henry and another man, Darren Koch, 19, as they were leaving Wal-Mart. 

Both Henry and Koch were found with stolen clothing. Koch was cited for misdemeanor shoplifting of about $40 of merchandise, and Henry was issued a summons for stealing items valued around $23. 

Following further investigation into the initial attempted theft, police determined there was probable cause to arrest Henry for felony shoplifting the previous day. Henry was charged and taken to the Lincoln County Jail.

Henry also has a previous shoplifting offense from Dec. 6, and hecontributing to the delinquency of a minor and procuring alcohol for a minor.

If convicted of all charges, Henry could face 23 years in prison and $28,000 fines.  

In court Thursday Henry requested a court appointed lawyer.Lincoln County Judge Michael Piccolo informed him that he would be assigned an attorney and scheduled a May 1 preliminary hearing date.

His bond is set at $10,000 for each of the three charges, to be paid concurrently, meaning he would be released if he pays 10 percent of $10,000.
