Trio helps itself to Walmart cash

A group of men in their 20s opened the cash drawer and helped themselves to $481 at Walmart, 4500 S. 108th St., at about 5:57 p.m. Saturday.

The first man was described as about 25 years old, wearing black blue jeans and a grey button-down shirt. The second was about 20 years old, wearing a black T-shirt and black shorts. The third was about 20 years old, wearing Chuck Taylor sneakers and a dark-colored baseball cap with an Adidas logo on the front.
