Undercover Benton police arrest three Walmart shoplifting suspects



Little Rock, Arkansas – The Benton Officers Department stated that after receiving a report of theft at the Benton Walmart on Tuesday, three suspects returned the following day at the same Walmart, but this time the officers were waiting for them.

At least two of the suspects were persons of interest in similar shoplifting instances that occurred in neighboring jurisdictions, according to the BNPD, who stated that they had received information that indicated they were filling carts with products that had not been paid for before departing establishments.

When the suspects returned to the Walmart in Benton on Wednesday, undercover police from the Benton Police Department were present, and they were ultimately taken to jail without any incidents occurring.

A class D felony charge was brought against Chakila Henderson, age 29, Iesha Mack, age 32, and Johnny Russell, age 50, all of North Little Rock. The charges were related to the theft of property.

A further misdemeanor charge of theft of goods was brought against Russell, while Mack was charged with identity fraud that did not involve financial transactions.
