Walmart employe in Indiana has been charged with felony theft after she was caught munching Oreos filched from the store’s shelves, police said. When confronted by cops with video of the alleged theft, Penny S. Winters, 63, admitted she ate the cookies and said she had been doing it for years. She claimed she could not help herself as she has struggled in recent times in a futile attempt to reconnect with her son, the notorious Cookie Monster.

After a box of opened Oreo cookies were discovered at a Walmart in Portage, Ind., and an investigation was conducted, a longtime Walmart employee admitted she not only consumed Oreos she hadn’t paid for, but also took junk food from the company every week for four years. In an incident report released to ABC News by police in Portage, Ind., officials state they responded to the Portage Walmart on Feb. 18 in reference to an internal theft investigation. Upon arrival, police spoke with a Walmart manager who said an empty food wrapper was located within the store on Feb. 12, coupled with surveillance video footage, indicated Winters was responsible. Winters told police she had been a Walmart employee for approximately seven years.

“We have high standards on how we conduct business in our stores and high expectations for all our associates. This includes acting with honesty, integrity and following company policies and guidelines,” Walmart media relations spokeswoman Ashley Hardie told ABCNews.com. “Unfortunately, Ms. Winters failed to meet those expectations. As a result of her violation of company policy she is no longer with the company.”

Both Winters and her once well paid son have gone into a tailspin ever since PBS, Sesame Street and Walmart have made it more difficult for high profile cookie eaters to get their breaks and rewards due to a strong national anticonfecion campaign. As one unidentified local Portage law official noted during her arraignment, "Thats how the cookie crumbles!"
