Crawfordville, Florida (Press Release) --

A 24-year-old Tallahassee man was charged with grand theft retail at 9:26 p.m. Thursday, Aug. 26 in connection with a theft case at the Crawfordville Wal-Mart, according to Sheriff David Harvey.

Witnesses in the store reported that Darrell Timothy Hall allegedly left the store with a latched tote full of merchandise without paying for the items. Traffic Unit Deputy Will Hudson was conducting an unrelated traffic stop on U.S. Highway 319 when he observed the suspect vehicle which had just left the store parking area. He conducted a traffic stop of Hall’s vehicle south of the Leon County line.

Hall told the deputy that he had been at Wal-Mart earlier and did not have a receipt for the 75 items inside the tote. Deputy Hudson returned to the store with Hall and matched his suspect with Wal-Mart surveillance evidence. Three witnesses at the store also provided sworn affidavits stating they observed the suspect leave the store without paying for the merchandise which was later valued at $483.

Hall was transported to the Wakulla County Jail where he remains under a $5,000 bond. Deputy Taff Stokley also investigated.

    It don't matter what color ur skin. If ur a thief u just a thief. Racism should be dead 2 bad its not, just like stealing, killing, lying, cheating, I could never understand why people hate each other because the color of thier skin, when we all are guilty of crime or sin @ some point in our life.

    If you guys will read, you will see that the first sentence tells us he is from Tallahassee. Why do Tallahassee people assume that when something happens in our nice small town, it is by some "stupid redneck". Well this time, some stupid thug came from Tallahassee.
