Retail giant Wal-Mart was the victim of an ink cartridge robbery

It can be hard enough to find the right ink cartridge or toner cartridge for a home office printer at the best of time but customers in League City, Texas would have found the stocks at their local Wal-Mart significantly depleted.

It has been reported that local police are looking for an individual who stole 122 ink cartridges worth around $20,000 from the mega-mart, Ultimate Clear Lake reports.

It occurred on Wednesday March 3rd but the loss was not discovered until the day after on Thursday March 4th when the store's security officers were looking through CCTV footage.

John Jordan, League City's police sergeant, told the news provider: "This is starting to be a trend that we're seeing.

"We've had this happen with shaving razors. Where these type of items are going, we have no idea."

If customers visit a store that has a fully supply of ink cartridges it's important to visit the relevant department knowing what printer ink you need. This information is usually found within the device.
