    Blind New Hampshire Man Fights Walmart Theft Charges

    A blind man faces trial next month on charges that he stole crackers, corned beef and other low-cost items from a New Hampshire Walmart while using the store's self-checkout kiosks.

    Thirty-nine-year-old Andrew Airey, of Conway, is accused of stealing a frozen pizza, oyster crackers, corned beef, a bath towel and a package of toothbrushes in separate visits to the North Conway store last year.

    A judge last week refused to dismiss the charges, but granted Airey's request seeking additional video footage from the store. His trial's scheduled July 26.

    Airey's lawyer calls him perhaps the least likely person to be capable of theft, given that Walmart employees frequently help him with purchases, including some of the visits in question.
