Two women were nabbed while allegedly attempting to leave a Walmart store with stolen merchandise while the store was filled with law enforcement agents and families during the annual “Shop With a Cop” event.
Shop With a Cop, a nationally recognized effort supported by donations, tries to help families with children who have been victims of crimes or are suffering from financial hardships. Some of their outreach is meant to facilitate a trusting relationship between children and law enforcement in cases where children have had interactions with police during criminal situations. The children and their families meet at Walmart and law enforcement agents take children through the store filling baskets with toys and goodies they desire for the holiday season.
On the morning of December 10 in Uniontown, Pennsylvania, local families were gathered with their children at Walmart so they could take part in the “Shop With a Cop” event.
