Blotter: Woman used 12-year-olds to help her steal from Walmart, police say

SALISBURY — A local woman used two children to help her steal items from Walmart and hide them in a stroller, according to the Salisbury Police Department.

Tonya Walls, 39, was charged Saturday with two counts of contributing to the delinquency of a minor and misdemeanor larceny.

A police report said Walls was in the store at 323 S. Arlington St. along with two 12-year-old girls and an infant whom she was pushing in a stroller. While walking through the store, the girls took items, including clothes, and placed them in the bottom of the stroller.
