EUNICE, LA (KPLC) -

A Eunice grandmother is accused of shoplifting at the Dollar Tree on Hwy. 190 West in Eunice with her juvenile grandchild.

According to a news release from Eunice Police Deputy Chief Varden Guillory Sr., officers were called to the store after a report of shoplifting.

Witnesses gave a description of the alleged shoplifters to officers. Rebecca McCauley, 53, and her grandchild were subsequently detained. Guillory said store merchandise was recovered from their purses.

The juvenile had $18.50 worth of unpaid merchandise, and McCauley had around $8 worth of unpaid merchandise, according to Guillory.

Guillory said McCauley also had a loaded 38-caliber revolver in her purse that was seized.

McCauley was charged with theft by shoplifting, illegal carrying of weapons and two counts of contributing to the delinquency of juveniles.
