A Mitchell man was charged with grand theft after allegedly taking barcodes off expensive items at Walmart and replacing them with barcodes from less expensive items.

Between December 2017 and March 12, 22-year-old Bryan Buck is accused of using Walmart's self-checkout without paying full price for several items. Buck would allegedly take the barcodes off inexpensive items and place them on expensive items, according to court documents. He would then go through self-checkout lanes and pay the less expensive prices for the items.

The total amount Buck did not pay is $1,070.20.

Buck is charged with misdemeanor refusing to leave property after notice and grand theft of more than $1,000, a Class 6 felony punishable by up to two years in prison and a $4,000 fine.
