    Employees at the store said they were watching Thornton as she shopped in the store due to an excessive amount of items placed in the shopping cart.

    Police said Thornton scanned and paid for three items, but she had 121 different items in her shopping cart.

    Thornton told investigators that she did not put the items in her cart because she knew she didn’t have the money to pay for it.
