Money stolen from Walmart

The video showed three people, two men and a woman, walk into the store and enter the self-checkout aisle, the police report states. As they did, one of the men reached around another register and twisted an unknown item into the device. The register popped open and the man grabbed the stack of $20 bills, which totaled $940, said the manager.

The three then left in a silver Buick Century, states the police report.
