Kerrville police announced Tuesday that two men arrested on shoplifting charges at the Wal-Mart there last weekend allegedly intended to use the loot — which included ski masks, black shirts and air pistols — to rob a supermarket that night.

Police Sgt. Drew Hufstedler said Wal-Mart security personnel apprehended Gregory Shupe, 20, and Jose A. Flores, 17, about 7:15 p.m. on Friday. Hufstedler said Flores told investigators of a plan to hold up the Super S. Food Store upon leaving the Wal-Mart.

A third man associated with Shupe and Flores was not charged but corroborated Flores' account, Hufstedler said.

Both suspects were charged with theft and conspiracy to commit aggravated robbery, and were jailed in lieu of $10,000 bail. A Kerr County Jail official said Tuesday that Flores was released Saturday on bond, and said Shupe remained in custody there.
