A Lawrenceville man allegedly tried to return items he never bought at a Walmart.

Snellville Police say Alexander Deonte Thrower walked into the Walmart on Scenic Highway on Thursday morning. They say Thrower headed towards the men's department, grabbed three packs of underwear and then walked right up to the service desk to request a refund for those items.

Thrower reportedly gave the Walmart employee a receipt and the worker gave the man a refund for $38.72.

The employee then called the police. 

Police arrested Thrower and charged him with fraudulent attempt to obtain refunds. Thrower was taken to the Gwinnett County Jail. His bond was set at $1,000.
