Wal-Mart thanks employee who foiled shoplifter, then fires her

Heather Ravenstein tried to save Wal-Mart some money Friday by foiling a shoplifter's plan to steal a $600 computer, but that cost the 30-year-old single mother her job. It's against Wal-Mart policy for anyone but a manager or someone in asset protection to try to stop a theft.
