In Uniontown, Pennsylvania, Walmart was hosting a "shop with a cop" event where police officers take young people from low-income backgrounds on shopping sprees to buy gifts for their families. According to PA State Police Troop B, that was probably not the best day for Sunny Ray Firestone, 32, to "try and walk out of the store with a shopping cart full of merchandise that you did not pay for."
According to a complaint Firestone told police her sick mother needed new clothes
Firestone has a history of retail theft.
Thank you to Mike Kelly Toyota, Fayette County Community Action Agency and Uniontown WalMart for hosting the shop with a cop program. Law Enforcement from the Pa State Police, Masontown Borough and The Fayette County Sheriff's Department met some happy kids. pic.twitter.com/waa4fK985q
