A Grundy County woman who threw her purse at Walmart security after being caught stealing has been bound to the grand jury on theft charges.Authorities say the woman, Della Mae Fults, 44, of Tracy City was in a stolen pickup when she arrived at the local Walmart to begin a shoplifting spree. She has been bound to the grand jury on charges of theft over $1,000, shoplifting and theft.Her charges come after security saw her conceal a car bench seat cover and baby wipes in her purse and then head for the door. She was approached by security at which time she fled, but not before throwing her purse.“She ran after throwing her purse, which contained her identification, at a Walmart employee,” said Walmart security in its warrant against Fults, noting the items were worth $36.It was determined after Fults was caught that she had been warned not to come around Walmart anymore after shoplifting charges in 2009.
