Authorities say 26-year-old Samantha Velez-Diaz, and 59-year-old Noe Baldiva-Corral, both Mexican foreign nationals, were arrested for their alleged involvement in an organized retail theft of about $82,000 from stores in Minnesota, Wyoming, North Dakota, South Dakota and Wisconsin. That includes about $5,000 in merchandise from the local Wal-Mart.
