Florida woman shoplifts bomb ingredients at Walmart, tries to blow up store

Emily Stallard, 37, reportedly crafted the homemade bomb in front of a child at a Florida Walmart.

A Florida woman accompanied by a child trolled the aisles of a Tampa Walmart, constructing a bomb as she went, and tried to blow up the store, police said Tuesday.

Emily Stallard, 37, of Tampa, was charged with several felonies, including attempted arson of a structure, fire bombing, contributing to the delinquency of a minor, child abuse and battery on a law enforcement officer, the Tampa Bay Times reported.

It was an alert security guard at a Walmart in Tampa who noticed Stallard cruising the aisles, picking up – and opening – “flammable materials, projectiles and matches,” the Tampa Bay Times reported. And she was shoplifting them, to boot, the Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office told the Tampa Bay Times.

Stallard then proceeded to fill a mason jar with fuel-grade denatured alcohol and wire brad nails – tiny and nearly headless – and fashioned a wick out of a shoelace. As she was attempting to set fire to the shoelace with a lighter, the security guard and an off-duty officer who the guard had alerted stopped her, WTVT-TV of Tampa reported.

“This woman had all the supplies she needed to cause mass destruction at her disposal,” Hillsborough County Sheriff Chad Chronister told the Tampa Bay Times. “Had it not been for an alert off-duty law enforcement officer and a watchful security staff at Walmart, she may have followed through with her plans to cause an explosion inside the store.”

Walmart weighed in too, noting that it had upped training for store personnel in deescalation and deterring shoplifting.

“We take the safety and security of our customers and associates seriously,” the retailer said. “We appreciate the quick response of local law enforcement and are assisting them as they investigate the matter.”

On top of it all, Stallard allegedly was toting a child and enlisting the tot’s assistance, police said.

“The defendant encouraged the child to engage in an act that could have caused great bodily harm and induced the child to become delinquent,” police told WTVT.
