18-year-old, Minor Arrested for Shoplifting at Beaumont Walmart

The elder initially got away, but police later caught up with him, officials said. He pleaded guilty to shoplifting charges Wednesday.

An 18-year-old Beaumont man whom police tracked down after he stole from the local Walmart pleaded guilty Wednesday to charges of theft, jail and court records indicated.

The teen was arrested Feb. 3 along with an unidentified juvenile, according to jail records and Beaumont Police Spokeswoman Darci Mulvihill.

Mulvihill said Angel Anthony Gutierrez was arrested not at the store, but after a search by police officers.

"Walmart loss prevention detained the minor, but Gutierrez fled on foot," Mulvihill said.  "Beaumont police officers were provided a photograph of Gutierrez and later made contact with a subject matching the photograph."

Guitierrez appeared in a Banning courtroom Wednesday, and pleaded guilty to shoplifting charges, court records indicated.  

He was sentenced to three years probation, and can't go back to Walmart.  In fact, he must stay at least 100 yards away at all times, according to court records.

Mulvihill said charges would be filed against the juvenile as well.
