Woman Stole $800 Worth Of Barbie Toys, Led Cops On High-Speed Chase

After stealing $800 worth of Barbie toys from a Buffalo-area Walmart, a New York woman led police on a 100+ mph chase, according to investigators.

Cops say Emoni Thompson, 26, swiped the Barbie haul Monday afternoon from a Walmart Supercenter in Lockport. After walking out of the retailer, Thompson departed in a 2016 Ford Escape, according to the New York State Police.

After officers spotted Thompson’s car, they activated emergency lights and sought to have her pull over. Instead, Thompson continued to flee, hitting speeds in excess of 100 mph.

Citing public safety concerns, cops say they discontinued the chase, but located the Buffalo resident the following day and arrested her for larceny, fleeing an officer, and multiple traffic offenses.

Thompson was issued an appearance ticket and is due in a Lockport court next month.

It is unclear whether the Barbie merchandise was recovered, or whether the stolen goods included a Dreamhouse or any products featuring Ken, Barbie’s reported boyfriend, or her sister Skipper.
