(Scroll down for video) Two men hatched a plan to steal expensive toys at a store in Florida.
Tarus Scott, 30, and Genard Dupree, 27, were arrested on Tuesday, after a surveillance video captured one of them faking a heart attack while the other was stealing toys.
The video at a Walmart in Lake Wales, shows the suspects walking through the store together and taking toys from shelves.
Rather than paying for the items, the two hatched a plan to distract people so that they can walk out without being stopped.
Dupree slowly laid down on the floor near the entrance while grabbing his chest and pretending to be having a heart attack.
Their plan worked, and while people tried to help Dupree, Scott allegedly walked out with $369 worth of toys, including a motorized Barbie car and a LeapFrog tablet.
Once Scott was out of the store, Dupree got up and walked out the store. Police arrested the suspects shortly thereafter, and they were each charged with grand theft.
According to police, both Scott and Dupree have extensive criminal records, and Scott was recently released from prison after serving 10 years.
