CORSICANA, Texas, Aug. 13 (UPI) -- A Texas teen was able to hide out in a Walmart in Corsicana for more than half-a-week without anyone forcing him to roll-back or roll-out.

The 14-year-old was able to spend four days in the Walmart without being detected after building himself two hiding spaces. He put one in the baby aisle and the other hide-out was behind stacks of paper towels and toilet paper.

"You never expect that you're at Walmart and someone has been living there for four days. That's crazy," Walmart customer Myrna Aguilar told CBS 11 News.

The boy was able survive off of food he stole from the store and guzzle juice via a hole he cracked in the back wall of the drink aisle. He even had a makeshift bed and a fish from the pet department.

In order to avoid being noticed when he was in plain sight, the boy would change his clothes periodically. He also wore diapers to avoid using the restroom at the store.

Trash eventually led to the boy being discovered, but he was released into the custody of relatives and Walmart does not plan on filing charges.
