LIVINGSTON, TX (KTRE) -

Livingston Police officers arrested a Cleveland couple for organized retail theft Wednesday after they allegedly clothes and two Pioneer car stereos from the local Walmart and then went back inside a second time in an attempt to steal two flat-screen televisions.

Garry Wayne Scott, 36, and Destiny Nash Johnson, 20, are still being held in the Polk County Jail, and both were charged with organized retail theft between $500 and $1,500, which is a state-jail felony. Scott was also charged with driving with an invalid license with a previous conviction.

Collectively, Scott's bail was set at $12,000, and Johnson's bail was set at $10,000.

Lt. Matt Parrish, a spokesman for the Livingston Police Department, said that Scott and Johnson entered the Livingston Walmart and stole two Pioneer car stereos and clothing items. Later, the couple returned to the store and tried to steal two flat-screen televisions.

When Walmart employees recognized Scott and Johnson and confronted them, the couple dropped the TVs and fled the store.

Livingston Police officers pulled the couple over about a half mile from the store.
