JOLIET, Ill. (WGN) -- A 19-year-old Joliet man turned himself in to police Thursday after he allegedly sprayed Lysol inside a Walmart while wearing a shirt that claimed he had coronavirus.

Tyler D. Wallace has been charged with criminal damage to property, disorderly conduct and retail theft, according to Joliet police.

Just after 4 p.m. Monday, one of the suspects put on a yellow medical mask and began spraying Lysol on produce, clothing and other items, according to police. The masked suspect also had a sign on his back that stated “Caution I have the Coronavirus,” police said.

Walmart estimated the cost of the damage at nearly $10,000.

A 17-year-old who was with Wallace at the time has been charged in juvenile court with criminal trespass and disorderly conduct.
