A loss prevention officer at the Bert Kouns Wal-Mart has been arrested for stealing over $500 in store merchandise.

Caddo Parish Sheriff Steve Prator says Joshua Faulk was responsible for catching and reporting shoplifters, but he began stealing from the store himself.

The sheriff says during the past three months, Faulk stole merchandise including DVDs, CDs, clothing, stereo equipment, video games, food and drinks.

Faulk was booked into the Shreveport City Jail on a theft charge.
