Woman in Dallas arrested after luring boys to Wal-Mart


DALLAS (AP) - A 23-year-old woman is jailed in Dallas on $150,000 bond after authorities say she was accompanied by 5- and 6-year-old boys when she was arrested at a Wal-Mart for stealing. Police determined she had lured the boys from their homes with candy and promises of more treats.

The Dallas Morning News reports arrest warrant affidavits show Castle Kameron Gately promised the boys who'd been playing outside their apartment complex that she'd buy them whatever they wanted if they went with her. A witness saw her enticing the boys with a chocolate bar and followed them to the nearby store. By then, the boys' mothers had called police to report them missing.

Gately is facing multiple charges, including a drug charge after police found crystal methamphetamine in her bra.
