A Greenville man is in custody and warrants have been issued for two other men in the theft of video game equipment from Walmart, Vicksburg police Capt. Sandra Williams said.

Greenville police Monday arrested Reginald Bell, 26, on a warrant from Vicksburg charging him with felony shoplifting and conspiracy to commit a crime. He was later released after posting a $75,000 bond, Warren County Jail records show.

Bell was one of three men, all from Greenville, involved in the theft of 25 PlayStation 4 Dual Shock Controllers with a total value of $1,500 that occurred after midnight June 12.

Williams said warrants have been issued for Tradarvio Maxon, 27, and Daniel McClinton, 22, in connection with the thefts. She said the men are also listed with the National Crime Information Center as fugitives.

She said information identifying the men came from calls to Crimestoppers after photographs taken from a store video were published.

“We received a lot of tips about the men through Crimestoppers,” she said.

She said anyone who knows the whereabouts of Maxon and McClinton should call

Crimestoppers at 601-355-8477.
