WACO - Three men identified through videos Waco Police posted on Facebook are now facing charges for the theft of boots from a local western store.

Wesley Takquan Lewis, William Darrell Simons and Stephen Raishair have all been charged with engaging in organized crime for the incident.

Police say the incident occurred on February 22, at Ritchie's Western Wear, located in the 4500 block of West Waco Dr. Security camera footage showed three men enter the store, wearing baggie jeans.

Lewis, Simons, and Raishair are accused of going to the boot department and taking three pair of Ostrich Quill boots out of their boxes and stuffing them in their jeans.

A store employee became suspicious of the way they left the store and checked the area where they had been. The employee found three empty boot boxes.

After reviewing the security tapes, the store called police, who posted the video online. After posting the video, police received identity information, then obtained warrants for Lewis, Simons, and Raishair and arrested them.

Lewis and Wood were arrested back in February 2013 for their connection to a theft at a local eye glasses store.
