LEHIGH ACRES, Fla. - A Lehigh Acres man faces a charge of grand theft for allegedly helping a friend steal an Xbox gaming system from a WalMart.

The crime was caught on camera.  25-year-old Carl Harper was seen on surveillance video helping an unknown white male conceal an Xbox as he exited the store on March 26.

Security footage shows the unidentified suspect who was wearing a red cap and left the store with the $300 device hidden underneath an oversized shirt.  He bypassed all the registers thanks to a little help from Harper.
