Plea agreements reached in Walmart DVD theft spree



In all, the women are suspected of stealing more than $100,000 in merchandise from Walmart stores in Wyoming, North Dakota, South Dakota, Wisconsin and Minnesota.

After pleading guilty to the Mankato thefts, the women waived fighting extradition to Clay County, S.D., where they are facing grand theft charges for allegedly stealing DVDs from a Walmart in Vermillion. Velez-Diaz and Baldiva-Corral will likely be returned to Minnesota, however. Charges for the thefts from the Owatonna Walmart were filed Jan. 7 and March 20 court dates have been scheduled for both women.
