A firefighter in Ohio has resigned after being accused of stealing $85 worth of Pokémon cards from a local Walmart.

Chase Green, 27 in Sandusky, allegedly stole 3 boxes of collectible trading cards on May 19. While checking out in the self checkout line, Green is accused of disguising his purchase by scanning the barcode of packs of gum – instead of the cards. He was caught by security cameras.

He later asked the officer who stopped him, “if this would be on his record because he was worried about losing his job.”
