Details: The suspect has already been banned from all Wal-Mart stores for life because of her past criminal activities, but that did not stop the 23-year old Madison woman from allegedly bringing 3 children to the Watts Rd. location Monday evening with the hopes of stealing alcohol and other merchandise, but primarily alcohol. Store employees said the group brought two big bags with them and swiped two others while inside the Wal-Mart.

They then proceeded to place more than $180 worth of vodka, tequila, garments and other items in the bags. Store security intervened before the thieves could get away. The adult suspect identified herself with a bogus name and it wasn't until she was being booked into jail that her true identity was gleaned. It was determined she has an outstanding warrant for retail theft and contributing to the delinquency of a child. She was also booked on several new tentative charges. They are listed above. The children were cited and released to their parents or guardians.
