A woman will face grand jury action for allegedly stealing Lollipop dolls from Walmart.
The woman, Deborah Lynn Merritt, 28, was bound to the grand jury Tuesday on shoplifting charges by Judge Bill Locke following her appearance in General Sessions Court.
According to arrest warrants, security saw Merritt conceal five Lollipop dolls in a shopping bag and then go past the last point of sale without paying for them.
