The Post and Courier has a great little story about two people that dressed as Wal-Mart employees and, essentially, just tried to walk out the door with thousands of dollars in electronics from the Summerville store.

Dressed in the standard-issue khaki pants and blue shirts they managed to get into the storage area, load up a cart, and nearly get it to their truck, until a suspicious employee encouraged their flight from the store. -- Apparently it's not the first time the tactic has been used at area stores.

Go check out the story.

Update February 27, late afternoon: ABC News 4 has a few more details.
