MILFORD, Del. -- The Milford Police Department responded to two cases of shoplifting at Walmart in one week, one on Saturday and one Wednesday. 

According to police, Taylor O’Neal, 23 of Milford, concealed merchandise inside of a purse as well as white Walmart shopping bags that she had taken from the self-checkout area. Police said that when she was confronted by personnel at Walmart, she ran and got into the passenger's seat of a car driven by Richard White, 33 of Lincoln.

Milford Police said they stopped the car in the Walmart parking lot and found the stolen merchandise. It happened around 1:52 p.m. Saturday at the Walmart on North DuPont Boulevard.
