BAD MOMWANTED IN PIERCE COUNTY —
We’ve got a bad mom who needs to be busted — taking a child to a Walmart in Pierce County to cash-in on a crime.

“In the video you can clearly see that she’s using the credit card, doing a self-checkout with the groceries,” says Pierce County Det. Ed Troyer. “The credit card was stolen from a burglary, so we want to track back and see who was responsible for doing that burglary, but she knows this card’s stolen and then we also see her leaving the store very casually, nonchalant, that kind of gives us the impression that she’s done this before, so what we want to do is get her identified and hold her accountable for using the stolen credit card and see if it has anything to do with the burglary.”

Pierce County deputies have already arrested another man who used a credit card stolen during the same burglary.

Now it’s time to get this bad mom identified.

If you can tell Pierce County detectives her name, call an anonymous tip into:
