PRESCOTT, AZ - Police in Arizona say two Walmart employees burglarized the store where they worked to pay for a car and a sex change operation.
Prescott police spokesman Lt. Andy Reinhardt told The Daily Courier that detectives determined that a key was used to enter a locked cash office where $45,000 was taken last week.
Police arrested 23-year-old Spencer Danger Cullen and 19-year-old Adriano Valdes Altiveros III on Friday.
Reinhardt says Altiveros reportedly told detectives he stole cash to buy a car. He says Cullen told police she stole the money to go forward with a sex change operation.
Cullen and Altiveros remain in custody. The Yavapai County public defender's office would not say Wednesday whether the pair had been appointed attorneys.
Prescott is about 80 miles north of Phoenix.
