ORANGEBURG COUNTY, S.C. (WCSC) - Investigators in Orangeburg County are looking to identify a man who is accused of shoplifting and assaulting an employee.
A Walmart employee noticed a man pushing a shopping cart with items believed to be unpaid for around 7 a.m. Tuesday, Orangeburg County Sheriff’s spokesman Richard Walker said. When the employee asked for the receipt, the man got upset and pushed her, Walker said.
