A Hephzibah woman was arrested Friday for allegedly shoplifting while her child was in the shopping cart.


Kiara Christine Freeman, 23, was seen on in-store cameras attempting to conceal pork chops, lipstick, a tooth brush, toy phone, baby wipes and Rimmel skin tone concealer, according to an incident report from the Richmond County Sheriff’s Office.

The incident occurred at the Wal-Mart on Deans Bridge Road.
