On 11/20/22 Loss Prevention Officer at the New Caney Walmart had a shoplifter detained, stating that he was a “cop”.
A Pct. 4 Constable’s Office Sergeant, working the #SafeShopper program responded to investigate.

The Loss Prevention Officer stated the suspect, identified as Alan Benitez, 30 years of age from Conroe, TX, was “skip-
scanning” at one of the self-checkout lanes, then attempted to leave the store without paying for some of the items.
“Skip-scanning” is when a customer deliberately decides not to scan an item but still puts it in their checkout bag. The
Loss Prevention Officer noted when they stopped Benitez, he said, “It’s ok, I’m a cop” and showed a badge”. Benitez still
complied and went into the Loss Prevention Office without an incident.

The Montgomery County District Attorney’s Office accepted the class B misdemeanor charge of False ID as a Police
Officer. Benitez was booked into the Montgomery County Jail and received a bail for $500 as well as received a citation
for Theft.

The #SafeShopper program is funded by the East Montgomery County Improvement District, allowing deputies to work
overtime, patrolling the commercial shopping areas in and around East Montgomery County.
