ORANGE PARK, Fla. -- Authorities in Clay County arrested a man and woman for stealing a TV from a Walmart.
The couple left behind something much more valuable which helped investigators track them down.

Once inside the store, investigators say Roos and Moorman were spotted placing a TV in a cart. A security guard heard and saw the couple remove the anti-theft device.

The couple took off.
Deputies reviewed security camera footage and spotted the car driven by Jessica Roos still in the parking lot.
The car was towed.
When Roos went to pick up her car, she ended up meeting with deputies.
Jessica Roos confessed to the incident.
James Moorman was arrested outside of the Walmart where he also confessed to the crime.
Both were taken to the Clay County Jail.
