BEECH GROVE., Ind. (WISH) - An Indianapolis mother was arrested Tuesday after police say she was caught trying to steal 42 items from Walmart by hiding them in her child's seat.
Kyla Price, 20, was arrested and preliminarily charged with theft. She was with her two children, a 1-year-old female and a 3-year-old female.
Reports said a store employee was monitoring the store's video surveillance and saw a woman, later identified as Kyla Price, 20, place several items in a plastic tote including a decorative trash can, diapers and fake nails on the lower rack of a shopping cart. She also concealed a shower curtain behind her daughter who was sitting in a child seat in the cart.
The employee told police Price made her way to the check out counter and paid for items in the cart's basket but did not pay for any items located on the bottom of the cart. As she was leaving, the employee stopped her. When asked why she didn't pay for the items found on the bottom of her cart, she said she was taking them to the layaway area. The employee didn't believe she would put those type of items on layaway and called police. The layaway area was not located in the direction she was heading.
Police say Price was uncooperative during her arrest. They say she had been caught twice before for shoplifting at Walmart.
