Police: man ‘returns’ $217 worth of sheets for refund

At the Walmart store in Maplewood, Brendon Joseph O’Callaghan, 21, of Ballwin, selected two sheet sets and a package of pillowcases, and without paying for them, took them to customer service and ‘returned’ the items, receiving a refund of $217 on a gift card, according to court and police records. 

O’Callaghan was identified by the temporary driver’s license he used for the refund  as well as by surveillance video, and a witness from the store. He was arrested several months later. After viewing photos taken from surveillance video, O’Callaghan admitted that he was the man in the video.
