LAKEWOOD, NY (WNY News Now) – A slew of shoplifting calls at the Lakewood Walmart, some of which were reported just minutes apart, kept police busy this weekend. 

Around 7 p.m. on Saturday 45-year-old Ailisa Fisher, along with two other women, were stopped by store employees for allegedly shoplifting, stealing merchandise worth more than $250 dollars. 

Within the same hour, officers also arrested 31-year-old Anshi Poliyam Potta and 24-year-old Britney Clifton for the same alleged crime. 

Police accused Potta of stealing merch worth only $8.72 while Clifton allegedly stole $450 worth of items. 

Officers with Lakewood-Bust Police respond to the superstore frequently for similar offenses. In fact, just Friday they made another arrest. 

Around 11 p.m. on Friday 31-year-old Jody Crissman was arrested after allegedly concealing stolen goods inside of a backpack and switching the price tags on other items to ring up at a lower price. 

He was stopped by officers as he attempted to flee the store. To make matters worse, this was not the first allegation of shoplifting filed against the Jamestown man. 

Police said Crissman was restricted from the shopping center back in April and was restricted for patronizing the establishment.  

Finally, during the 8 o’clock hour on Friday 41-year-old Zuleyka Fuentes-Cruz was allegedly busted with stolen merchandise at the store, as well.
