A Florida woman has been hit with numerous charges after she tried to build a bomb inside a Walmart while with her child. 

Emily Rae Stallard, 37, was arrested at a Tampa Walmart on Saturday after two men stopped her from allegedly lighting the makeshift bomb: made with a candle wick, a mason jar, nails and denatured alcohol. 

A security guard called deputies with the Hillsborough Sheriff’s Department to the scene, where they learned that the woman had been roaming the store for approximately an hour with her son. 

With assistance from an officer from the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commision, Stallard was detained ‘without incident.’ 

Florida Police Scanner report that the woman did try to spit on officers as they apprehended her and placed her in a patrol car. 

The mother was charged with attempted arson, fire bombing, child abuse, battery on a law enforcement officer and contributing to the delinquency of a minor.
