pregnant woman arrested for sholiftingLakesha Michelle Gilchrist, 38, walked into a local Wal-Mart and told her young daughters to help her steal items from the store, according to Cobb County, Georgia police. She was arrested as she was attempting to leave with several baskets worth of merchandise, but was released because she’s 39 weeks pregnant.

After she delivers the baby, though, she’ll be back.

The AJC reports:

On Friday afternoon, Gilchrist, of Marietta, allegedly tried to leave the Wal-Mart on Cobb Parkway with three shopping carts and three plastic containers of household goods and clothing, according to an arrest warrant obtained by the AJC. The merchandise was valued at $1,582.98, according to Marietta police.

But Gilchrist didn’t act alone, police said. She brought her daughters, ages 15 and 10, into the store and encouraged them both to help steal merchandise, according to police.

According to Officer David Baldwin, she will be arrested on a felony shoplifting charge and two counts of contributing to the delinquency of a minor once she delivers the baby.

This story is sad on so many levels. Though stealing is never, ever right, it is often an act of desperation. Hopefully, everything will work out and she can be at home with her newborn where she belongs.
