BENNTNGTON, Vt. – Bennington Police are looking for two men that allegedly entered a Walmart store, picked up items off a shelf, and attempted to return them.

According to police, the men took the items to the service center where they attempted to return the items for a refund. They claimed the items were purchased a few days ago by their boss.
When employees told the men they would have to research the purchase, they left the items behind claiming they would be back.
They did not return.
Store video shows the men leaving in a Ford pick-up truck, possibly with a New York registration.
