A local man tried duping Walmart employees over the weekend, according to deputies.

Anthony Vega, 25, purchased about $700 worth of items from the Walmart at 12200 Montana Avenue Saturday, said El Paso County Sheriff’s Office officials.

Deputies said after Vega loaded his vehicle with the items he bought, he went back in.

Vega is accused of loading his shopping cart with the same things and trying to walk out the door by showing employees the receipt from his original purchase.

He is also accused of trying to get away from deputies at the scene.

Vega was booked into the El Paso County Detention Facility on suspicion of theft, evading arrest and resisting arrest.
