Two Florida men face grand theft charges for engineering a fake heart attack in Wal-Mart so that expensive Barbie toys could be stolen during the confusion.

Tarus Scott, 30, and Genard Dupree, 27, are seen on surveillance footage acting out the fake health emergency as Mr. Scott then scuttles out the door with a motorized power wheel Barbie car, Leap Frog tablet and a Barbie Glam vacation house, The Associated Press reported Thursday.

Video of the theft was uploaded to YouTube Dec. 17 by the Polk County Sheriff’s Office.

The two men did make it out of the store, but were caught later by deputies.

It is unclear whether the two men have legal representation, AP reported Thursday.
