Texas Teen Caught Living in Walmart

CORSICANA, TX (CBS NEWS) -- Workers at a Walmart in Corsicana, Texas were shocked to find a teenage boy secretly living inside the store for a few days.

It was here down the aisle with baby strollers where a 14-year-old boy set up a camp site inside this Corsicana Walmart .

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.

Photos show the clothing that employees say the boy would change in and out of every few hours to avoid detection.

Sources say the 14-year-old was so concerned about being caught he wore diapers instead of using the store restroom.

Eventually, a trash trail led to the teens discovery.
Police were called and released the boy to the custody of relatives

We're told the boy lives with relatives but was visiting other relatives when he disappeared.

CPS says they are usually called in to investigate cases like this but were not called this time.

There's no indication Walmart plans to file criminal charges at this point.
