Walmart Employee Allegedly Stole $230K From Store In Fake Return Scheme

Nacina-Walker

A Walmart employee who worked in the cash department was the last person police would have suspected to be running an elaborate scheme to scam the company out of hundreds of thousands of dollars. In fact, she was an employee police often turned to help investigate thefts.

On Tuesday, Nacina Walker, was arrested and charged with theft of property of more than $200,000. Police said Walker, who’d been a trusted employee at the Decatur, TX store since 1982, stole nearly $240,000 in total.

According to police, between January 2013 and October 2014, Walker created fake returns and would pocket the refunds. Authorities say she admitted to starting with small amounts like $50, but eventually the fake refunds “snowballed” to $8,000 a day.

Her motive? She told police she did it to “help pay her bills.” In her statement, Walker said she was on a salary cap and she needed the money for medical bills, her husband’s business, and because she was caring for her elderly parents.

Walker was released from Wise County jail Tuesday after posting a $30,000 bond.  if convicted, Walker faces anywhere from five to 99 years in prison.

        Have we searched for her parents??

    Has anyone made the “looks like she spent it on twinkies” joke yet?

  • Donnie Fawcett

    Should have spent some on cosmetic surgery!! EEEEWWWWW!

  • Karlly

    Sounds to me like she’s just a thief! Medical bills, her husband’s business and caring for elderly parents? Who’s going to care for them when she’s in prison? The problem is, if she hadn’t gotten greedy, she might never have been caught! And really, the store manager should be fired too since he’s obviously not too good at his job!! What manager wouldn’t know that $8K is missing in ONE day??

      Not the sharpest tool in the shed are you there Texas? She worked at a cash control center. Meaning all the money from all the stores was coming through her. She’d been there since 1982. She probably started out honest and then had some nefarious thoughts which lead to nefarious actions which got bigger and bigger until pop goes the weasel.

      • Cassie Lynn

        She worked in the cash department of a single store. Not a cash control center; also those are called banks. Walmart doesn’t send all of the money from all of the stores to a single location. But I agree with the second part. When you’re there for that long and you know the ins and outs it was just a matter of time and circumstance. Not surprised it went up to 8k a day. That’s what happens when you get away with stuff like that. You get cocky.

        • Brandon Delfuego

          Fair enough. That’s so crazy that they don’t have people double checking for this exact reason. That’s a lot of faith to put in the hands of a lot of people. I worked at a theme park that had crazy amounts of money and they had triple checkers checking the double checkers. I find it hard to believe that such a large company has such loose cash handling policies. I’m willing to bet there are a LOT of embezzlers working at wal mart.

          • Cassie Lynn

            I agree. I find it very odd that there aren’t people there to check things. That seems bizarre.

  • Cheryl Babineau

    Wow those poor Walton’s had money stolen from their employee. Such a damn shame. I guess it sucks big time when the shoe is one the other foot.

  • Michael McGinnin

    All the recovered money from restitution, should go into a fund to prevent further animal abuse from Walmart’s overcrowded and inhumane poultry and pig farms.

  • Ray Myer

    You mean she scammed a business notorious for scamming customers, foreign laborers and its own employees? Good for her. Hope some others pick up on it and they lose a LOT more.

    • Wanda Zippler

      Theft is never a good thing.

      • Ray Myer

        I completely and utterly disagree. There are times theft can be used as a motivator or used to teach a lesson to someone whose head has grown too large.

  • Brandon Delfuego

    Survival of the scammiest and you didn’t make the cut.

  • Linda

    This is so wrong of me to feel this way but for some reason I felt badly that she got caught. Had it been almost any other business I would say she got what she deserved but I have zero respect for a company that treats its employees and customers so poorly, I hate Wal-Mart and do anything to avoid having to use them for any product, I will gladly pay a few dollars more just to not buy from them.

    • bogart

      Then you better be boycotting the vast majority of retailers in the USA. Walmart is no worse than most of the other retail employers. Just because they are the largest doesn’t mean they should always be the ONLY target for complaints about poor pay and benefits.

      • Linda

        That’s not all together true, while you are correct that most retailers pay less than they can afford, Wal-Mart, who earns more than most retailers in the USA and can afford much better is the worst with regards to their employees. I work for another very large retailer and as an associate make twice as much as Wal-Mat pays and my benefits (very affordable) makes Wal-Marts look like trash. So I’m sorry friend, you are partially right but looking at the whole scope Wal-Mart is the worst offender of them all.

    • Chub Rub

      This woman in no way deserved the $8000 a day she was stealing from them This woman is a thief and this money will never be paid back. If she worked for a more ethical company, she would still be a thief. Stealing is stealing and in God’s eyes, the owners of Walmart will pay for their crimes and so will this woman.

      • Linda

        Yep, I totally agree with you, I just don’t feel as strongly about it knowing its Wal-Mart.

  • bogart

    Walmart is no worse than the vast majority of employers in the USA. Just because they are the biggest doesn’t mean they should always be the ONLY target for complaints about poor pay and benefits.

    • Chub Rub

      It also does not make an excuse to steal from them. Stealing is wrong, no matter who you are.

    • sherryl

      I agree. I can only take a trip to the store of circus freak shoppers once a year. But hating Walmart must be what people do when they arent shopping there. Jobs are not as plentiful and Walmart employees anyone. Liars are over populating and she had others who worked with her so snowballing is not going to be an issue in Hell.

  • sherryl

    She sure had a lot of excuses for stealing, she has a problem, stealing for thrill. Make her a greeter with orange uniform and ball and chain on her ankle. Walmart since 1982. Started small when Walmart was cheaper and kept stealing higher amts. with the higher prices. I wonder if any one has seen her elderly parents? Cashing checks and they are probably not needing them. More to come on Nacina such a need to be noticed. Amount stolen seems low. she lost her ambition.
