A teenager with an apparent affinity for Great Value products and fluorescent lighting built "secret compounds" inside a Walmart store in Coriscana, Texas, living there for two-and-a-half days. The 14-year-old was so determined to not be discovered and stay in the store, he reportedly wore diapers. A trail of trash eventually led to the teen being discovered by store employees.
Customers who walked down the aisles where the teen was living never noticed two hidden compounds where the boy was able to store necessities, sleep in a makeshift bed and and eat items taken from inside the store.
He created a crack in the back wall of the drink aisle to grab juice and even collected a fish from the pet department.
"You never expect that you're at Walmart and someone has been living there for four days. That's crazy," Myrna Aguilar, a Walmart customer, told CBSDFW. (You don't say!)
According to the Dallas-Fort Worth Fox affiliate, the teen created a hideout in the baby stroller aisle and another behind paper towels and toilet paper.
The teen was living with his aunt while his mother was away, and apparently has a history of running away and "has hidden in abandoned houses, businesses and creeks in the past."
