Two Storm Lake adults were arrested Friday night at Walmart after fleeing the store with over $300 in groceries. Store staff attempted to stop them in the parking lot, but they were able to get into their SUV and flee the area.

Police found the vehicle stopped near the intersection of Highway 71 and 580th Street, with the suspects - Kayleen Sharon Johonna Leedahl and Duane William Wiggins, both age 27 from Storm Lake - inside.

They were both booked into jail on serious misdemeanor theft charges and released pending court dates.

Two small children were also located in the SUV used in the theft - age 3 and 19 months. Police have reported the situation to the Department of Human Services.
