• A 13-year-old Newton girl was charged with fifth-degree theft after authorities responded to a report of a juvenile shoplifter at 12:10 p.m. June 26 at Walmart. She was charged for taking $27.77 in merchandise and leaving the store without paying. She was referred to juvenile court services.

A criminal charge is merely an accusation, and the defendant is presumed innocent until and unless proven guilty. It is the policy of the Newton Daily News to release the names of individuals charged with a crime who are 16 and older.
