Consumer News and Links for Jan. 31st (Late Edition)

From the Du-ju-ana Shoplift For Mommy? department:

A Middletown, Ohio woman, Dujuana Horton, was caught teaching her two teen children how to shoplift from Wal-Mart. She urged her 13-year old daughter to stuff DVDs into her purse, then took her into the washroom to give her a lesson on how to remove the security strips. She has been charged with theft and contributing to the delinquincy of a minor. I sure hope these kids aren’t home-schooled. (WCPO)

From the Check Yourself! department:

In another thrilling Wal-Mart delinquency story, Wendy Michelle Austin of Alabama was arrested for writing bad checks to the Wal-Mart Supercenter in Demopolis, AL. This marks the sixth shoplifting arrest made since the crooks company opened their store on Jan. 23rd. (The Demopolis Times)

From the Babysitter’s Club department:

Juanita Rodriguez, 39, of Taunton, MA left her five-year old son home alone with a convicted child molester while she was busy shoplifting from a local department store. Juanita was arrested, as was Raul M. Ruiz, 50, who is listed as a Level 3 sex offender (that sounds like some kind of twisted version of Dungeons & Dragons). There’s negligence and then there’s complete stupidity! Juanita should have taken her five-year old son with her and taught him how to shoplift. That would have been easier to forgive. (The Enterprise)

From the We Don’t Sell Wheelchairs department:

A top shopping mall owner in Australia has paid $38,000 to the Muscular Dystrophy Association of Australia for taking mall wheelchairs away from two brothers who were trying to get backto their car. One brother crawled back while the other had to be carried by his sister. That’s one security guard you don’t want to piss off! (Brockton News)
