Walmart ex-employee in court for theft

A Lake Park man will make his first appearance Tuesday in Becker County District Court on a felony charge of property theft (over $5,000).

Ryan Daniel Goroski, P.O. Box 488, Lake Park, is accused of taking both merchandise and food from Walmart in Detroit Lakes while he was employed there.

According to the criminal complaint, Goroski was employed at Walmart for about three years. In October, he was accused of having taken some food from the store without paying for it, and additional thefts were suspected.

After meeting with investigators, Goroski allegedly brought in two boxes of items he'd taken from the store over time, including DVDs, video games, a computer, television and other items. In all, it was estimated that he had taken more than $6,156 in food and other merchandise.
