2 Accused of taking donation kettle from Illinois Wal-Mart

CARBONDALE, Ill. (AP) -- Two women are accused of stealing a Salvation Army donation kettle from outside a southern Illinois Walmart.

Onesha Gibson, 25, and Kimberly Baggett, 21, of Carbondale are free on bond after being charged in the theft last week.

A bell ringer outside a Carbondale Walmart says he and a co-worker noticed the kettle missing just after two women with children walked past and got into a taxi.

The bell ringers wrote down the taxi's license plate number and told police, who arrested the two suspects a short time later.

The Salvation Army says the kettle and the money inside were recovered.

Gibson and Baggett don't have listed home telephone numbers. Court records don't show whether they have attorneys.
