Police: Walmart Employees Stole $45K for Car and Sex Change


Police in Prescott, Ariz., have arrested two Walmart employees for allegedly stealing $45,000 in cash from an office at the store where they worked.

Lt. Andy Reinhardt, spokesman for the Prescott Police Department, said detectives ascertained that Spencer Danger Cullen, 23, and Adriano Valdes Altiveros III, 19, conspired over several days before committing the robbery.

"Through investigation and surveillance video, detectives determined that a key was used to enter a locked cash office where $45,000 in cash had been removed," Reinhardt said.

During questioning, Altiveros allegedly revealed that he stole the money to purchase a car, while, according to Reinhardt, Cullen "told detectives the reason she stole the money was to go forward with a sex change operation."

Both were arrested Friday at their individual residences.

"Detectives did not recover all the cash because the suspects had used some of the money to buy numerous clothing items found at the homes and a Toyota Supra for $22,000," Reinhardt said. "Altiveros had negotiated a price before the burglary with a seller out of the Phoenix metro area."

Between the recovered cash and the merchandise detectives found on site, all but 31 cents of the money was accounted for, Reinhardt said.
