Ocala, FL – A Florida “mother” has been arrested after she ditched her 1-year-old son at a Walmart following a botched shoplifting attempt.
Police say 19-year-old Allison Niemeyer and her sister, 22-year-old Laura Niemeyer, stuffed approximately $60 worth of merchandise inside her son’s diaper bag as they perused the aisles of a Walmart on Friday. As they headed out the door with their loot, a loss prevention officer instructed them to come back inside.
Allison had some brain cells fire up behind that stupid looking face of hers, all three of them instructing her to run like hell and to leave her sister behind with her son. Laura eventually broke free from store employees and followed her sister to a van that had been waiting for them in the parking lot. The van sped off with the sisters, leaving behind the 1-year-old boy and the stolen merchandise.
The next night police would receive a tip that the sisters where driving a silver Dodge Durango and were currently enjoying themselves in a dance club. Police had the club page the owner of the vehicle and when the pair emerged from the club, they were arrested by police without incident.
Both sisters were charged with felony child neglect and retail theft, but Laura would get a resisting a merchant charge and Allison would get a charge for violating her probation. Turns out this isn’t the sisters first time in a courtroom.
Allison is already on house arrest until 2021 for her role in a 2010 home invasion where five teenagers were accused of breaking into a 61-year-old man’s home, pistol-whipping him and robbing him. Allison, who was pregnant at the time, was the getaway driver. Her older sister has three previous convictions for retail theft, grand theft and uttering a forged instrument.
The boy is currently in the custody of the Florida Department of Children and Families. If I were running this joint, Allison’s uterus would be on its way to the sun.
