An investigation into a reported theft at the Walmart Supercenter resulted in the arrest of a man who allegedly admitted taking money from cash registers.

Cameron Goodrum, 21, also reportedly admitted taking a set of head phones while he was working at the store, Deputy Prosecutor Maxie Kizer said during a court hearing Tuesday morning for Goodrum.

Detective Larry Gailey reported that police were sent to Walmart Monday at 5:43 p.m., where a loss prevention officer said store personnel had reviewed video surveillance tapes and could prove that Goodrum had stolen $1,800 beginning in late September or early October.

Kizer said Goodrum had no prior convictions or pending charges.

Jefferson County District Judge Kim Bridgforth set a $1,500 bond for Goodrum after ruling prosecutors had probable cause to charge him with theft of property.

Goodrum told the judge he would hire his own attorney and was instructed to come back to court Feb. 14 at 9 a.m.
