ROCKINGHAM — A man is accused of getting a refund from Walmart for an air conditioner that he didn’t buy, according to the Rockingham Police Department.
Police say Marvin Lee Crump, 45, of Brook Avenue in Rockingham, bought a 15,000 BTU air conditioner from Walmart on March 31 and took it outside. They say he later entered through the garden center entrance, picked up another unit and took it to the customer service desk.
Police say Crump used the receipt from the previously bought air conditioner to obtain a refund of $279.48 for the second unit.
Crump was arrested Wednesday and charged with a felony count of obtaining property by false pretenses. He was released on a $2,500 unsecured bond.
