Paducah police are investigating the alleged thefts of electronic equipment from both Paducah Walmart stores.

A loss prevention employee of Walmart South on Irvin Cobb Road told police she found a display case damaged while working on Wednesday, April 16. Det.

The loss prevention employee notified her counterpart at the Walmart store on Hinkleville Road of the theft. Employees there found a display case had been pried open and seven laptop computers were missing. Additionally, two desktop computers were stolen from store shelves. They say the total amount of that theft was $5,582.

Police say detectives are following up on tips and the investigation is ongoing.
