Nicole Golden Caught Stealing Shopping Cart from Walmart with $1,194 Worth of Goods
Nicole Golden allegedly tried to wheel out a shopping cart filled with nearly 100 stolen items worth $1,194 from a Walmart in Athens, Georgia, on Tuesday night.
The shopping cart contained 56 articles of clothing, 25 various household goods, two cell phones and a child car seat, according to an Athens-Clarke police report.
Golden was charged with felony theft, reports OnlineAthens.com.
A Walmart loss prevention officer said that someone alerted him to a woman who was stuffing merchandise into “totes,” large plastic containers with lids.
The loss prevention officer watched Golden as she placed items in and around the totes that were in her shopping cart.
Golden pushed the cart toward an exit, where there was some construction, and asked for permission to pass through the area.
That’s when the loss prevention officer confronted Golden, who tried to get away by climbing a fence at the construction site, but the security employee prevented Golden’s escape and called police.
