A man is being told to stay away from the Osage Beach Wal-Mart.
According to reports, 33-year-old Michael Finley is being accused of entering the store and attempting to walk away with hundreds of dollars in merchandise.
A probable cause statement shows Finley allegedly took boxes of light bulbs, removed the bulbs and then placed several high dollar value items inside the boxes.
Those boxes were then scanned at the register without clerks realizing the items inside were not light bulbs at all.
Police say they were able to recover most of the stolen property.
Finley was taken into custody on 5 active warrants from multiple departments across the Ozarks.
