A 25-year-old St. Johns County woman was arrested after she tried to steal tools, DVDs and food from a St. Augustine Walmart, a police report said.
Karson Kidwell was charged with grand theft after she stole $574 of items from Walmart by stuffing the items into a duffel bag, the St. Johns County Sheriff's Office said. A Walmart loss prevention manager reported the theft.
Among the items recovered: DVDs of the movies "Magic Mike," "The Campaign" and "Bad Teacher" and several tools, batteries and food items, including chicken and dry salami.
The loss prevention manager noted that Kidwell took the items to the front of the store and attempted to walk the items out the door, the report said.
Karson told the arresting officer that she stole the items because, "It's hard times."
She planned to give away some of the items as Christmas gifts, the report said.
