A glitch in the government's Electronic Benefit Transfer card system Saturday  led  to  customers with EBT cards stripping shelves at two Wal-Mart stores in northwestern Louisiana bare. The computer problem prevented the cards  from  showing  balances; something many took as free reign to spend as much as they chose  -  filling multiple carts with  food items. When the stores - in Springhill  and  Mansfield  - announced on loudspeakers that the system was back online and they'd be checking balances, most just left their full shopping carts where they were  and  exited the store. One woman was detained because she rang up a bill of $700.00 and only had .49 on her card. She was held

by police until corporate  Walmart  said they wouldn't press charges if she left the food.
