January 7 — On January 2, Richmond Police Department (RPD) officers were dispatched to a Walmart at 820 Eastern Bypass regarding a shoplifting complaint.
When Angela Brown was about to leave with an unpaid item, state officers were notified by the store’s loss prevention department, according to police documents. Brown was with her fiancé in the self-checkout area when her employee saw her hand the camera over. She didn’t buy the camera, it was put in her purse instead.
The couple were stopped as they tried to exit and were taken to the loss prevention office to await law enforcement.
A citation in the arrest warrant states that Brown agreed to speak with officers.
She told police she believed the camera was purchased because she saw something of similar value at checkout.
A search of her purse allegedly found $25.58 worth of unpaid merchandise, multiple capped needles, and a clear plastic bag containing a clear, rock-like substance. Records show that Brown admitted to law enforcement that the substance was a small dose of a stimulant.
Brown was then taken to Madison Country Detention Center.
Brown was charged with shoplifting and first-degree trafficking of a controlled substance. Her arrest also fulfilled an indictment for her three additional drug-related charges issued by the Boyle County Circuit Court.
