Humble WalMart robbed by utility worker imposter

Tuesday, April 30, 2013

A WalMart employee in Humble faced some terrible moments after falling victim to a utility worker imposter.

Investigators say around 7am Sunday a man claiming to be with the WalMart corporate office told employees he needed to check the electricity and phones after Saturday's storm. Once in the administrative offices he forced a female employee to open the safe then duct-taped her hands, feet, and mouth.

The suspect took off with thousands of dollars in cash. The employee was not injured.
