JAMESTOWN, N.D. (AP) — Police say a Jamestown woman is accused of shoplifting from a local Walmart store and then using her children to sell the stolen property.

The Jamestown Sun reports that 40-year-old Tara Bauer is charged with theft of property, dealing in stolen property and child neglect or abuse.

Police say Bauer shoplifted an estimated $5,200 in items from the Jamestown Walmart and recruited others, including her teenage children, to return the items for cash or to pawn the stolen items.

The alleged thefts took place in early June. Bauer was arrested July 8.

Bauer is free on bond. She is scheduled to appear in court Aug. 12.
