DURANT, Okla. -- A Durant woman is in prison after allegedly stealing close to $3,000 dollars from Wal-Mart. Durant police say Deborah Ward, 41, was an employee at the store and took the money in order to pay for her prescription medications.
She first took money in May of this year and then again earlier this month. That was when store officials approached the woman, who confessed to taking the money.
Ward is currently in the Bryan County Jail on embezzlement charges.
