The Willmar Police Department took a report on Saturday of a motor vehicle theft from Walmart. The vehicle was located by the Kandiyohi County Sheriff’s Office shortly after it had been stolen as the vehicle was leaving the city of Willmar on County Road 23 eastbound.

A 28-year-old female from Kandiyohi was taken into custody and is currently being held in the Kandiyohi County Jail.

The Sheriff’s Office was assisted by the Willmar Police Department and the Minnesota State Patrol. The incident is under investigation by the Kandiyohi County Sheriff’s Office and the Willmar Police Department.
