Walmart greeters are usually nice, elderly people just making some extra dough in their golden years. But even in such a pleasant group of folks, there is always going to be one rotten apple.
Police in Statesville, NC, have arrested an 83-year-old Walmart greeter on charges of attempted robbery after he allegedly pointed a gun at a fellow employee and fired shots while trying to wrest some cash from the register.
After [the greeter’s] shift Sunday night, he went outside to this car to get a gun, then went into the garden center of the store, stuck a gun to an employee’s head, and made him walk to the cash register to remove money.
A witness saw [the suspect] leave the store and drive off. The witness was able to follow him and direct responding officers to his location.
As of this morning, the greeter was being held under a $75,000 bond.
