A spunky and salty-tongued older woman is becoming a bit of a folk heroine since video has been circulating of her confronting and stopping a suspected shoplifter in a Canadian Walmart over the weekend.
Global News reported that Saturday morning’s incident at the store in Campbell River — about four hours northwest of Vancouver, British Columbia — began when a man followed the suspected shoplifter heading for the store exit.
The man — who apparently was recording video of the heist — asked the apparent shoplifter if he was planning on paying for the items that filled his cart.
“Yeah,” the alleged shoplifter — who’s wearing a ski mask — replied.
As the suspect grabbed his bike and wheeled it toward the open door, he told a gray-haired woman who arrived there before him “excuse me.”
