Falling & Stumbling & Opening Packages!

Laurens City Police were summoned to Walmart just before 9:00 yesterday morning on reports of a woman who appeared intoxicated as she was falling and stumbling throughout the store. Sgt. Alexander reported arriving to find a group of employees near the electronics section, who told of the female selecting items from the shelves and opening the packages. She reportedly had multiple open packages such as cell phone cases. While she was being questioned by police, store employees brought numerous buggies containing items that had been opened and concealed. EMS was called to check on the woman’s condition. After determining her blood sugar was high, she was transported to hospital, but not before an officer issued her citations for Shoplifting and for Trespass at Walmart After Notice. Walmart was to provide police with a report once all the opened and concealed items had been documented.
