One of his new charges alleges he and another man went into Atwood’s on Loop 11 and Baisden walked out with a Dewalt pole saw valued at $240 and the other man walked out with a stolen hat under the beanie he wore into the store.

Another charge alleges Baisden took 2 necklaces from the Walmart on Central Freeway on April 21.

The March 21 arrest was for two alleged thefts at the Harbor Freight store on the same day, when police say two men walked out with three welders.

Baisden’s record includes a conviction and probation for $12,000 worth of vandalism to six WFISD buses in 2015.

A few months later, he was arrested for the vandalism of vehicles using a pellet gun.

Another recent arrest was from an alleged theft last November when a homeowner posted a video of a man pulling into her driveway, running up to the porch and taking a Christmas package.

The other man charged with working with Baisden on many thefts is Shane Waller, who has 12 arrests for theft since last August.
