A Florida man was arrested after police noticed him allegedly ‘rolling back’ the prices of Walmart items by placing pre-made bar code stickers on products.

Fort Pierce police said Horace Shannon, 43, applied a sticker onto a newly released DVD at the Okeechobee Road store that dropped its price from $24.96 to $5 when scanned at the cash register.

According to a police report obtained by WPBF, Shannon saved $150 on ‘discounted’ DVDs and Lego sets purchased through the scam.

Authorities became aware of the operation after viewing surveillance video that showed Shannon purchasing the items and refunding one of the Lego sets with a receipt for its regular price.

Shannon was arrested on a theft charge.
