Police have arrested a 22-year-old man who they say confessed to stealing more than $6,000 worth of electronic items from a Waco Best Buy he worked at.

According to an affidavit, on October 11, 2012, an officer was sent to the Best Buy located in the 4600 block of South Jack Kultgen Expressway in Waco.

When the officer arrived, a manager told him an employee, identified as Carter, had been caught stealing a 65-inch Samsung TV on camera. The TV was valued $2,499.99 and the alleged theft happened on Sept. 11, 2012.

A manager with Asset Protection at Best Buy, told the officer that he had interviewed Carter and he admitted to stealing a number of items worth an estimated $6479.95. The affidavit also says Carter gave a written confession to store personnel.

The items Carter is accused of stealing include: a Boston acoustic Soundwave, valued at $499.99, an HP laptop, valued at $450, a Sony camcorder, valued at $250, a 60-inch Samsung TV, valued at $1,799.99, a 65-inch Samsung TV, valued at $2,499.99, a 1000 AMP kicker, valued at $550, a Nintendo DSI, valued at $99.99, a Pioneer CD player, valued at $275, and a Sony PS3 controller, valued at 54.99.
