(Newser) – One wanted a Supra; the other, a sex change. So two Walmart workers allegedly teamed up to steal $45,000 from the Arizona store that employed them—money that would purchase surgery for one and a car for the other, they told police. One of the employees distracted the cashiers while the other broke into the store’s office, say authorities. But neither goal was to be achieved; security cameras captured the theft, and police tracked down the pair later, KTVK reports. Both face felony burglary and theft charges.
