It didn't take Egg Harbor Township police very long to figure out that stories of a missing 8-year-old girl at a local Walmart weren't making a lot of sense.

Donna Hall, 58, and Nicholas Hall, 30, were both arrested on a number of charges. Full details are available on the Facebook page of Egg Harbor Township Police:
