He begins to evade the worker but the limited agility of the scooter stumps the man. He decides to reverse and ram the worker in frustration, successfully pinning the worker to a blue box behind her. Customers attempt to stop the thief on the scooter but he manages out maneuver the members of the public and evades capture, he speeds off into the distance with his stolen goods.

Pima County Sheriff's Department released the footage and is requesting the public to come forth and aid in the capture of the mobility scooter thief. He is suspected of robbing the same Walmart the day before on July 2nd.
