Castle Kameron Gately, a 23-year-old Texas woman, was arrested after the Dallas Police Department says she tried to lure two young boys to help her rob a Walmart. She had crystal meth stuffed in her bra at the time of her arrest.
Gately was arrested on two counts of restraining a child, one count of drug possession, and one count of property theft under $30,000, after she allegedly tried to lure the two young boys with a promise of candy.
According to reports, Gately had the two boys, ages five and six years old, with her when she was arrested on suspicion of shoplifting at the Walmart located at 6185 Retail Road in Dallas, Texas.
Loss-prevention workers questioned the boys, ages 5 and 6, and it quickly became clear they didn’t belong to Gately and didn’t even know her, according to a police report.
The boys said they had followed her to the Wal-Mart because she promised to buy them “whatever they wanted,” according to her arrest warrant affidavit.
The two friends said they had been playing outside their apartment complex when Gately approached them and said she’d buy them food and water if they came with her.
A witness told police he saw Gately “luring the children with a chocolate bar” so he followed her to the Wal-Mart, about a mile away from the children’s homes.
While police were searching Gately, they found a clear bag of crystal methamphetamine stuffed into her bra.
The two boys were immediately returned to their mothers, who both called 911 to report them missing. Neither boy was harmed.
As for Gately, she faces two charges of unlawful restraint of a minor, one count of substance possession, and one count of property theft under $30,000, and is being held in the Dallas County Jail on $150,000 bail.
