Woman Lures Two Boys With Promise Of Candy, Had No Idea She Was Hiding This In Her Bra

A mother in Texas called 911 to report two young boys missing. It’s like the old horror story, and the parents must have been terrified: a witness said a stranger lured the children away with the promise of candy. The police found the trio together at the local Wal-Mart. The woman was trying to get the children to shoplift for her.

Castle Gately, 23, a homeless woman in Dallas was arrested for shoplifting at Wal-Mart after she lured to strange children in to help her. She was also found hiding methamphetamines in her bra.

Gately reportedly approached the two boys, ages 5 and 6, when they were playing outside their home. She held up a chocolate bar and told them if they came with her to Wal-Mart, she would buy them whatever candy they would like.

They boys didn't know Gately, but they dropped her toys and followed her anyway. The mother soon after went out to look for the boys and couldn't find them, then called 911.

A witness said to police he saw Gately 'luring the children with a chocolate bar'.

The boys were at Wal-Mart with Gately and attempted to walk out of the store with a bunch of unpaid for merchandise. Wal-Mart employees stopped the three, and the boys made it clear rather quickly that they didn't know who Gately was.

Gately was arrested, and when police searched her they found the meth she had stuffed in her bra. She's being charged with a slew of charges, including two counts of unlawful restraint of a minor, one count of substance possession and one count of property theft under $30,000.

The homeless woman's bail has been set at $150,000 but it hasn't been posted as of yet.

The two children were returned home and found to be unharmed. It looks like the parents are due for another stranger safety talk with the little guys.
