It seems like the great office tradition to take a few supplies here and there—a package of Post-Its, a stapler—changes when that “office” happens to be a Wal-Mart and the “supplies” are Oreo cookies. An employee was caught stealing cookies and other junk food from the store where she was a full-time maintenance worker. The employee who was stealing the cookies told police she couldn’t afford the food but police were hesitant to believe this story as she was only found eating junk food, instead of the healthy food they consider a “necessity.”
The employee said she wouldn’t steal again, and unfortunately for her, Wal-Mart agreed and fired her.
UPDATE: Felony charges are being filed. Really. More at The Smoking Gun.
