PORT CHARLOTTE, Fla.- Charlotte County Sheriff's detectives arrested three people involved in stealing two televisions from Walmart, located at 19100 Murdock Circle. Sue Ann Moats, 31, of 4228 Worchester Drive; Anna Elizabeth Cusack, 28, of 2290 Lakeshore Circle; and Eric Charles Householder, 34, of 21150 Gertrude Ave., were arrested and charged with Grand Theft.
CCSO received a call Sep. 25at 6:04 p.m. from Walmart security concerning a past theft. Surveillance video showed at 1:51 p.m. two women entered the store through the Garden Center, went to the Electronics department, placed two televisions in their cart and left the store without paying. They drove off in a grey Chevrolet HHR. Security said the same vehicle matched the same description from a few other thefts at that store, which remain under investigation. Detectives obtained a license tag that came back to Householder, an associate that worked for Walmart before being let go.
Detectives went to Householder's apartment Thursday and observed two women in front that matched the descriptions seen in the surveillance videos. Detectives also talked to Householder and said they were investigating the thefts from Walmart; they then learned of their identity of Cusack and Moats. Cusack told detectives she did steal the two televisions; Moats said she needed to steal the televisions for money to get her water turned back on. Detectives learned that Householder took Moats and Cusack to Walmart; he stayed in the vehicle while they stole the televisions and brought them out to the car.
All three were arrested and transported to the Charlotte County Jail. Moats remains in jail on no bond, she is a convicted felon with 12 bookings. Cusack is also being held on no bond, her third booking; Householder posted a $2,500 bond and was released.
