On 6/12/2022, at 1501 hrs, I was dispatched to Super Walmart (751 W Oglethorpe Hwy) refernce a shoplifting in progress call. I arrived on scene and made contact with Mr [WITNESS #1] in the lost prevention office.

Mr [WITNESS #1] stated he observed, Kirk Smith, at the self check out register. [WITNESS #1] stated he observed Mr Smith on camera not scan items and place them into a shopping bag. He stated Mr Smith passed the point of sale with the items. The items were recovered and returned to Walmart.

Mr Smith admitted to not scanning all of items and offered to pay for the items.

Mr Smith was placed under arrest for theft by shoplifting less than $500.00 o.c.g.a 16-8-14. He was issued a citation for theft by shoplifting, served a criminal trespass service notice, and given a mandatory court date of 07/06/2022.

The arrest and transport of the suspect followed department protocol consisting of the suspect being searched, handcuffs being applied, checked for fit and double locked. The suspect was seat belted for transport and placed in the backseat of my vehicle. My vehicle was searched prior to and after transport with no contraband found.

The suspect was released to the custody of Liberty County detention staff.
