PALM COAST, Fla. -

Flagler County deputies say two women and an 8-year-old boy tried to steal $1,100 worth of merchandise from a Palm Coast Walmart.

Deputies tell Local 6 they were called to the Walmart on Cypress Point Parkway on Tuesday morning. When deputies arrived, a Walmart worker explained he had caught Betty Jenkins, 42, a second woman and an 8-year-old boy attempting to steal merchandise.

Deputies say the trio took the merchandise and hid it in totes before walking into the parking lot. However, a loss prevention worker saw them and confronted them. Jenkins and the boy stopped while the other woman, 23-year-old Tyquandra Bibbs, ran back into the store, according to deputies.

While questioning Jenkins and the boy, deputies say Bibbs called Jenkins several times. With the help of Jenkins, deputies were able to find Bibbs across the street from the Walmart.

Jenkins and Bibbs were arrested and charged with grand theft and contributing to the delinquency of a minor.
