(Meredith) – A woman in Florida has been arrested after police say she was caught building a bomb inside a Tampa Walmart.

According to Fox61, a security guard caught Emily Stallard, 37, wandering aimlessly through the aisles opening random items such as nails, a Mason jar and alcohol. The security guard alerted an off-duty FWC officer who was in the store, telling them he thought her behavior was suspicious.

Officials said the security guard and officer stopped Stallard right before she lit a wick, detaining her until police officers arrived.

The arrested report says that Stallard spit on the officers as she was escorted to the squad car. She has been charged with attempted arson of a structure, fire bombing, contributing to the delinquency of a minor, child abuse and battery on a law enforcement officer.
