Vermont woman pleads guilty to Easter goods theft

Posted: Updated:

RUTLAND, Vt. (AP) - A Vermont woman has pleaded guilty to shoplifting mostly Easter goodies from Wal-Mart.

The Rutland Herald reports that 22-year-old Monica Barker of Rutland was arrested last Thursday in downtown Rutland after police wrestled her to the ground.

Police say Barker shoplifted almost $70 worth of items. Police say most of the stolen items were Easter-related, including candy eggs, a cookie and egg coloring kit and spring grass.

Police say Barker told them that she planned to give the items to her child and godchild.

Barker pleaded guilty to the theft charge in exchange for the dismissal of the other two charges. She received a suspended jail sentence and has been placed on probation with the conditions that she stay away from Wal-Mart and receive counseling for impulsive theft.
