Prosecutors have charged a 35-year-old woman accused of pepper-spraying employees at Walmart in Keeaumoku when she and another woman attempted to take merchandise from the store without paying for it.
Danielle K. Kahele, also known as Danielle K. Kaneao, was charged with second-degree robbery and her accomplice, 29-year-old Heather Tull, was charged with habitual property crime. Bail for the women is set at $50,000 and $25,000, respectively.
Police said the suspects entered the store on Jan. 30 and attempted to take flat-screen televisions without paying for them. When employees stopped them, one of the suspects pepper-sprayed them, police said.
The suspects left without the merchandise.
Police arrested the suspects in McCully-Moiliili Wednesday.
