Wake County News

RALEIGH, N.C. (WNCN) – A local Raleigh Walmart allowed kids to play “Cops and Robbers” inside its store on Saturday – except it was legal.

The Raleigh Police Department partnered with the Walmart Superstore located at 8000 Town Drive in Raleigh for its annual “Shop with a Cop” event.

The event allowed pre-selected kids to take a $100 gift card, and a Raleigh officer, around the Walmart and go on a shopping spree.

The cops accompanied each kid in their buying decisions and also thought them about their profession.

The event took place from 8 a.m. until 11 a.m.
