A longtime Wal-Mart worker in Portage is in trouble with the law after she was literally caught with her hand in the cookie jar.

Penny Winters, 63, was arrested after store surveillance cameras revealed she had eaten a package of Oreos while on the job without paying for it.

But this wasn't the first time she had swiped the sweet snack.

Winters, a full-time maintenance worker, admitted she had been stealing cookies once or twice a week over the past seven months at the Portage store. But the junk food thefts go back even farther than that.

Winters confessed that she has been taking junk food from the company every week for four years, a crime that first started at the Arizona Walmart where she was previously employed.

Winters is charged with one count of felony theft.
