Suspect says she needs diaper money, instead tries to buy diapers
A woman panhandling for money Monday morning inside Walmart reportedly threw beer at employees after they refused to let her buy steaks with money another customer gave her to buy diapers.
According to an incident report, a woman was walking around the Walmart Neighborhood Market asking customers “to giver her money to buy diapers.”
One customer loaded funds onto a gift card for the woman in question and left it at the front counter so she could buy the diapers she needed. However, when the woman walked up to the front counter with “a handful of steaks,” employees would not allow her to use the gift card.
A manager told the woman to leave the store when she yelled out “that she was going to throw a cup at him,” the report states.
The woman drove up to where employees were standing and threw a “cup full of beer” at one of the managers before driving away in a maroon Chevrolet Impala, according to the report.
Resident’s vehicle keyed at Walmart
A Conway woman called police Monday after her vehicle was keyed while she was at Walmart.
The incident occurred shortly after the 65-year-old woman went inside the Walmart on Dave Ward Drive, according to an incident report.
The woman recalled driving down Row 5 when a blue sports car also turned down onto the isle driving in the wrong direction. The 65-year-old said she pulled into a parking spot, when the blue car “backed in after several attempts” near her.
The complainant said the woman walked in behind her but that when she stopped to talk with a friend inside the store, the woman in question turned around and left the store.
A woman who was sitting in her car said she saw the suspect walk out of the store and key the complainant’s vehicle before leaving the area, according to the report.
“[The witness] stated before the [suspect] got in her vehicle, she scratched [the complainant’s] vehicle with something she had in her hand,” the report reads in part. At this point, the witness wrote down the suspect’s license plate number and notified the complainant about what happened.
Officer Tyler B. Langely noted there was previous damage on the driver’s side “near the bottom of the doors” and that it was clear the recent damages included a 2-foot long scratch “near the middle of the door.”
At the time the report was filed, damages were estimated at $900.
