Oreo Stealer

63-year-old Walmart employee Penny Winters was fired and charged with a felony for stealing Oreo cookies.

A 63-year-old Walmart employee in Indiana has been fired and charged with a felony for stealing some Oreos.

Not just some, but a lot of Oreos — for years.

Penny Winters is her name, and she worked for the company for 8 years making $11.40 an hour.

She was caught on surveillance camera eating a pack of Oreos that she allegedly hadn’t paid for.


After the company interrogated her, Penny cracked.  She admitted to stealing a package of Oreos once, sometimes twice a week for the past 5 years.

Do the math, that’s at least $1,000 in cookies.

Winters told police that she simply couldn’t afford to pay for her favorite snack.

If convicted, this grandmother could face jail time.
