LIVINGSTON, TX (KTRE) -

One of three suspects allegedly involved in an organized retail theft ring that targeted the electronics departments of at least four Walmart stores in Southeast Texas is behind bars in the Polk County Jail after he was transferred from the Galveston County Jail and booked in Thursday morning.

Perry Domicko Booker, 18, is still being held in the Polk County Jail on felony charges of engaging in organized criminal activity and organized retail theft between $1,500 and $20,000. Collectively, his bail has been set at $50,000.

According to a press release, the Livingston Police Department started the theft investigation on Aug. 21. A Walmart employee called the police after he or she found that a gaming console case had been broken into by three black male suspects, who stole an undisclosed number of gaming consoles.

"After further investigation it was determined that there were four other Walmart stores that were targeted by these same three black male suspects," the press release stated. "The investigation continued by other law enforcement agencies sharing information and a vehicle description was obtained along with photographs of the suspects."

The information sharing led to LPD investigators being notified by the Kemah Police Department on Aug. 26, that the three suspects, two adults and a juvenile, had been identified and arrested after another theft at the Walmart in Kemah.

According to the Kemah Police Department, the three suspects had allegedly also targeted the Walmart in LaMarque shortly before they were arrested. The two adult suspects were taken to the Galveston County Jail, and the juvenile was taken into custody by juvenile authorities in Galveston.

The press release stated the Livingston Police Department then sought and obtained arrest warrants for the suspects. Booker was later arrested in Houston on Sept. 4. He was transferred to the Polk County Jail.

"The Livingston Police Department is continuing the investigation, and more arrests are to follow" the press release stated.
