JONESBORO, Ark. – A woman who was already criminally banned after allegedly shoplifting ten times returned Monday afternoon to Walmart to give it another go, a police report alleged.
The Jonesboro Police Department dispatched Officer Joseph Branstetter at 3:22 PM Monday to Walmart on Parker Road where loss prevention reported seeing Stacy Brooke Pretty-Bowen, 34, of Tuckerman violating the law.
The report said she was witnessed placing a $0.97 tag on an $84 item and a $0.49 tag on a $7.76 item. The items were a Mojo-brand Duck Decoy and Christmas lights, respectively. This alleged act constitutes misdemeanor theft.
The loss prevention employee made contact with her and escorted her to their office without incident. He told police she had been previously banned from 1911 West Parker Road and “had shoplifted ten previous times.”
Unfortunately, it gets worse from there.
