MOON TOWNSHIP, Pa. - A Moon Township woman awaiting trial on charges she used her adult children to help her sell drugs, and was then charged with possession of child pornography because of images police said they found when her phone was seized in the drug investigation, is in trouble again.

Pamela Smallis, 49, faced a preliminary hearing Tuesday on retail theft and conspiracy charges stemming from an incident Jan. 7 at the Walmart in South Strabane Township.

That's when and where police said Smallis stole keys to a locked electronics counter and used them to steal nine iPads and 23 iPods valued at $9,972. Smallis allegedly handed the items to two accomplices, Olivia Domenick and Jeremy Stover, who helped load them into a van.

Smallis' defense attorney Jim Ecker said Walmart claims to have surveillance video of the incident.

“I have not seen the video, but I understand they do have that,” Ecker said.

The shoplifting charges were waived straight to common pleas court.
