TAMPA (WFLA) – A New Port Richey man accused of stealing almost $5,000 worth of merchandise at a Walmart claims he does not remember doing it.

Deputies say Fruggiero had committed three thefts at the Walmart in a week but Fruggiero says due to his blood sugar diabetes, he does not always know what he is doing, and does not remember stealing from the Walmart on State Road 54.

He has been charged with scheme to defraud and was transported to Land O’ Lakes Detention Center.
