How many thefts does that make at the new Walmart to-date?

From previous Patch Greendale police blotters: January 28th report: 1 theft at Walmart. February 4th report: 1 theft at Walmart. February 11th report: 1 theft at Walmart. February 19th report: 1 theft at Walmart. According to Patch, it would seem that the count is up to 4.

As a comparison, I added up the totals for the other stores on the list for the same time period: Kohls had 21 thefts. Sears had 14. JC Penney had 10. H&M had 4. Macy's had 6. Boston Store had 3.
