Walmart is moving forward with felony charges against an employee of an Indiana store who admitted to eating “multiple” Oreo cookies because she said that she couldn’t afford to pay for them with her salary.
A Portage Police Department report obtained by The Smoking Gun on Thursday said that Penny Winters had been arrested after a Walmart investigation determined she was guilty of theft.

“If she makes $11.40 per hour and works the typical Walmart 30-32 hrs per week, she is about $100 over the monthly limit to receive food stamps in Indiana. 30 hrs is just under qualifying as “full time.” If full time (35 hrs), Walmart would have to pay health care and other benefits.
The saddest part is, if she is convicted of the class D felony, she’ll have to disclose it at interviews, pretty much assuring she’ll never work again. Let’s hope it gets reduced to a misdemeanor or dropped altogether.”
