Pepper-spraying shoplifting suspect arrested

DULUTH, Ga. -- A shoplifting suspect who's also accused of pepper-spraying a Walmart employee has been arrested in Florida.

Kahala Johnson is being held in the Jacksonville County Detention Center. She was taken into custody Oct. 15 at her mother's house in Jacksonville.

Police said they believe Johnson is the woman who pepper-sprayed an associate at a Duluth Walmart on Oct. 8. The associate was trying to stop Johnson from walking out of the store with a cartload of electronics and household goods without paying for them.

Duluth Police Det. Bobby Johnson said the victim was informed of Johnson's arrest and is very grateful the suspect no longer poses a danger to anyone.
