WEST ASHLEY, SC (WCSC) -

The Charleston Police Department has arrested a 24-year-old man accused of stealing $500 worth of clothes and shoes from a Walmart where he was previously employed.

Investigators arrested Kenyial Mitchell on Saturday and charged him with breach of trust.

On Oct. 16, 2012, police took a report of a larceny that happened the month before at the Walmart on 3951 West Ashley Cir. The loss prevention associate told authorities that Mitchell, a former employee, stole hundreds of dollars worth of clothes and shoes from the store.

Store officials say Mitchell was seen on surveillance video stealing the items on Sept. 8, 2012. Police say Mitchell took merchandise from store shelves and went into the restroom, and came back out without any merchandise.

A police report states that another employee saw Mitchell inside the restroom putting clothes from the store into a backpack.

Investigators say Mitchell provided a written statement to store officials admitting to stealing items from the business.
