TAHLEQUAH — Tahlequah police arrested a Locust Grove man Tuesday afternoon for allegedly shoplifting from Walmart.

Police Lt. Billy Dowling said Walmart asset protection employees caught John C. Bertinot, 34, taking five DVDs and other items and concealing them in a shopping bag while he stood in the menswear section of the store. Bertinot then allegedly left the store without paying. According to Dowling, Bertinot has been arrested at the Claremore Walmart for shoplifting, and also has failure-to-appear charges out of Wagoner County.
