Vermont woman pleads guilty to Easter goods theft

A Vermont woman has pleaded guilty to shoplifting, taking mostly Easter goodies from Walmart. The Rutland Herald reported that Monica Barker, 22, of Rutland, was arrested Thursday in downtown Rutland after police wrestled her to the ground. Police said Barker shoplifted almost $70 worth of items. Most of the stolen items were Easter-related, including candy eggs, a cookie and egg coloring kit, and spring grass, police said. Barker told police that she planned to give the items to her child and godchild. Barker pleaded guilty to the theft charge in exchange for the dismissal of two other charges.
