 Walmart Thief gets bagged on Facebook.

  Walmart called Stuart Police for a retail theft in progress on March 31.  The suspect fled before the officers arrived.  Walmart Loss Prevention provided security surveillance images of the male committing the theft.

Officers located a male fitting the suspect’s description on social media as Nicholas Paul Nereau. Nereau made comments on his Facebook page talking about how officers need to learn to do their jobs and how we cannot find him. An arrest warrant was issued on Nereau for retail theft on Thursday.

Officer Chris Heitfeld took the suspect’s advice.  Mr. Nereau was in the back seat of Officer Heitfeld’s patrol car within three hours of the warrant being issued.  Then Mr. Nereau was on his way to Martin County Jail with a $20,000 bond.
