NEW PORT RICHEY, Fla. — Pasco deputies have arrested two New Port Richey Walmart store clerks and continue to look for two more suspects accused of being involved in marking down prices on video games in order to resell them for their own gain.

Seth Lulow, 19, and Dominic McGhee, 20, were part of a scheme to mark the video games down to as low as $1 in order to purchase the products themselves, deputies say. 

According to law enforcement, Lulow is accused of personally stealing $3,795.41 worth of video games between April 1 and April 23. He was seen on video working with McGhee who stole $771.65 worth of video games, according to the arrest affidavit.

Lulow and McGhee were both seen marking down the prices on surveillance video in the security room of Walmart, the affidavit adds. Both used the self-checkout line or would ring the video games up for each other, deputies say. 

They worked with two other unidentified suspects, deputies say, who stole a combined $947.34 worth of video games.

In total, all four stole $5,386.76 worth of video games from Walmart, according to the affidavit.

Deputies say Lulow and McGhee both admitted to their roles in the scheme. The affidavit adds Lulow resold the games to local game shops. 

Both are charged with scheming to defraud over $300.
