Woman banned from all Walmarts caught there again

SALISBURY — A Concord woman who has been banned from all Walmart stores is in jail again after police say she tried to walk out of a Salisbury Walmart with a cart full of merchandise.
According to a Salisbury Police report, Maggie Maria Rodriguez, 43, was charged at the 323 Arlington S. Walmart when she and a man distracted a greeter at the store’s garden entrance before walking out with merchandise.
Walmart’s loss prevention staff was monitoring the woman, the report said, and caught the woman about five feet outside of the door.
Salisbury Police were immediately called. Walmart’s staff told officers that the male fled when Rodriguez was approached in the parking lot.
The report said the woman has been caught stealing from six other Walmart stores in the area and had been banned from all Walmart stores across the nation.
Rodriguez, 123 Robin St., was charged with misdemeanor larceny and misdemeanor second-degree trespassing.
She was released after posting a $3,000 bond.
