On December 10, 2016 at around 10:30 pm, Port St. Lucie Police went to the Wal-Mart located at 1675 NW St. Lucie West Boulevard reports of a shoplifter in custody by store security. Once on scene officers learned that Fox was attempting to wheel a shopping cart full of property from inside Wal-Mart.  Fox had selected several items to include a security camera system then tried hiding the item by placing a tri-fold display board and foam board over the security system.

Fox reportedly went to the garden center exit then left the cart at the exit while he checked the parking lot.  When he came back to the cart, store security detained Fox as they called the police.  Further investigation revealed that Fox was in the store earlier and stole a Razor Hovertrax.

Continuing the investigation police went to Fox’s car, which was located in the parking lot.  Police discovered that Fox had items totaling almost $500.00 to include an Xbox One gaming system, 8 camera security system, TV wall mount, 3 hoverboards, and miscellaneous movies.  Fox told police that he stole the property from different Wal-Marts throughout the week.

The amount of stolen property recovered totaled $858.88.  Fox was arrested and taken to the St. Lucie County Jail for booking.
