A woman was jailed and her partner given probation after they were caught stealing dog food from Walmart for their personal kennel.
Jennifer Orozco was ordered to serve two days in jail, make $246 restitution, perform 24 hours public service work, undergo a drug and alcohol assessment, and was warned to stay out of Walmart. Her partner in the crime, Hector Gutierres, was given an 11-month, 29-day probationary sentence and must perform 24 hours public service work and was also warned to stay out of Walmart.
Both entered guilty pleas before General Sessions Judge Bill Locke to charges of shoplifting after they were caught by store security trying to steal hundreds of dollars in pet supplies.
According to store investigator Casey Tubb, the suspects were seen placing multiple bags of dog food underneath their shopping cart. They were then followed and security watched as they placed the items into empty Walmart bags they had brought into the store.
The two were apprehended by Walmart security when they exited the store without paying. An inventory revealed they had taken dog and cat food and various pet supplies which they were reportedly going to use for their kennel.
The total amount of the items was $246.
