Police have arrested a man suspected of taking money from cash registers at several area Wal-Mart stores this summer including the store in Vincennes and stores in Lawrenceville and Robinson, Illinois.
Sergeant Dave Marqua with the Robinson, Illinois Police Department says 33-year-old David Panning of Bloomington, Indiana is being held in the Monroe County Jail in Bloomington, Indiana on theft charges.
Panning is also being held on theft warrants out of Montgomery and Hancock Counties in Indiana.
Marqua says authorities were able to locate Panning after a Wal-Mart corporate executive in Ohio got a tip.
He says Panning allegedly committed the same type of theft in at least 23 other Wal-Mart stores in Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky, Ohio and Michigan.
