An employee advised Sara Napier had come into the store with another female, approached the liquor section, and concealed several bottles of liquor in her purse before leaving the store, bypassing all points of purchase. The employee escorted Napier back into the store where she recovered the items undamaged. Napier advised she did it because “she didn’t have any money, and she was being stupid.” Napier was issued a citation for theft and issued a trespass warning to stay off Walmart’s property.
