Some people work hard for their money, especially when it comes to a multi-thousand-dollar heist.
Others just make it look easy.
Among the latter are the guys who hit a Walmart Supercenter in the 15900 block of FM 529 Sunday afternoon.
Crime Stoppers and the Harris County Sheriff's Office say a pair of men made off with thousands of dollars in cash, and the surveillance video shows there wasn't too much effort put into the whole thing -- just walk up behind a cashier who's closing out, give her a body check and get the hell out of there.
The official description of events:
[A] female victim had just finished emptying a cash register as an unidentified black male approached her from behind. The male shoved the victim, and took the bag of cash. A second black male suspect acted as a look-out during the course of the offense. Both suspects fled the scene on foot.
