Two arrested in Walmart razor blade theft

STUART, Fla. - Two men were arrested after stealing $5,000.00 worth of unopened shaving razor blades, according to Stuart police. 

The incident happened on March 13 at the Stuart Walmart. 

Police say a witness reported the theft and followed the suspect's white BMW from a safe distance. The suspect's vehicle reached high speeds and the witness lost sight of it. 

The suspects, Michael Castaneda and Victor Marquez of Lake Worth, were located and arrested by Stuart police during a traffic stop. 

According to officials, $1,300 worth of blades was taken from the Stuart Walmart and the other stolen merchandise was linked to a Walmart in a neighboring jurisdiction. 

"Due to the high retail value of shaving razor blades, they are commonly stolen and sold online," said police. 

They suspects were charged with grand theft. Additional charges are likely.
