Thirty-seven year old Emily Stallard of Tampa, Florida will appear before a judge on Tuesday after police arrested her for allegedly making a bomb inside of a Walmart.
The Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office said a security guard noticed the Stallard wandering aimlessly through the aisles for more than an hour, opening odd items such as nails, a Mason jar and denatured alcohol. He told deputies her behavior was “suspicious.”
The security guard began watching her closely and alerted an off-duty FWC officer who was in the store. The two men were able to stop Stallard right before she lit a wick and detained her until deputies arrived, according to the arrest report.
Deputies said Stallard spit on them while she was being loaded into the patrol car.
