Walmart Madness #75! Felony Oreo Theft!

I couldn't imagine why stealing Oreos to eat on the job could be a felony.  It turns out that she admitted to thieving food on over three occasions,  which makes it a felony.

"Penny Winters was arrested this week after Walmart launched an internal investigation upon the discovery of an empty cookie wrapper. A subsequent review of surveillance footage showed “Ms. Winters select the package of cookies, open it, and proceed to consume multiple cookies during her work shift,”


"When cops asked her about the Oreos, Winters claimed she found an open package of the cookies near a cash register and assumed that they had been provided for free by management.
Winters was arrested Monday and charged with felony theft for pinching the Oreos (and other unspecified junk food). Winters was released from the Porter County jail Tuesday."




Read the whole story,  including the police report,  at one of my most favorite websites :)

Her real crime was not dumping the Oreos in milk. You can't have Oreos without milk. You just can't.

Camel Spiders are Not "true" spiders ... They actually are another type of arachnid... and even they do not the size of the one in the Russian account..

OMG some people can make a ruckus about every little thing -_- Let her pay for the cookies and everything is fine XDDDD

Yeah Kat. I know she felt like doing the right thing and confessing, but she should have NEVER admitted to anything to the police.
