Despite being banned from all Walmart properties, Olivia Madden, a 27-year-old woman from Ottawa, allegedly committed retail theft at the Peru Walmart on Saturday afternoon. It’s unclear what led to Madden’s ban, but one thing is certain – it didn’t prevent her from engaging in criminal behavior. Despite Walmart’s efforts to keep their properties safe and secure, incidents like this one serve as a reminder that shoplifting and theft remain prevalent issues for retailers across the country.
In addition to being charged with shoplifting, Madden also faced a charge of criminal trespassing. Madden’s alleged partner in crime was 47-year-old Marie Christensen, who resided at the same Ottawa address. Both women were issued notices to appear in court.
