Walmart Madness #82! Man Fires Flare Gun Inside Store

Police are searching for a man who shot off a flare gun in Walmart Sunday and slipped out before officers showed up.

According to the police log, officers were called to Walmart on Otis Street at just before 6 p.m. Sunday for a report that a flare gun went off and damaged the floor.

Sgt. Joseph Galvin said employees said a man in his 40s opened a package containing the flare gun and fired it. No one was hurt.
Employees asked the man why he shot the flare, and he told them he “wanted to see if it worked,” Galvin said.

As employees were cleaning up the mess – including some paper towels that were charred by the flare - the man left the store, Galvin said.

Your welcome Doc. I can't believe they just let that dope walk out of there, lol. At least no one got hurt, and at least he wasn't testing out the toilet paper to see if it worked or something.
