JANUARY 22--After stealing $73 worth of merchandise from Walmart, a Louisiana man made his getaway on one of the store’s electric wheelchair shopping carts, according to police who subsequently corralled him at a nearby truck stop.

Daniel Gaspard, 45, left the store Saturday afternoon with a half gallon of vodka, an Adidas sun visor, a TV antenna, and “Mardi Gras cups,” police reported.

The items were inside the front basket of a shopping cart that Gaspard drove past checkout lanes at the store in Eunice, a city 80 miles west of Baton Rouge.

A Walmart employee heading to work spotted Gaspard driving the cart through the parking lot of a nearby Dollar Store. After the worker told a store manager about the cart theft, police were summoned.
