A woman who tried to outfit herself for free at Walmart faces not only theft charges, but also narcotics counts after lawmen found her stash when they arrested her.The woman, Stacy Lynn Walker, 34, will face hearing in General Sessions Court on March 5.Her charges come after Walmart security watched her conceal items inside the store.“She removed items of clothing from the ladies’ department and went to the shoe department where she put on a T-shirt and jacket belonging to the store,” the warrant reads. “She then concealed a pair of blue jeans and a pair of Fubu shoes inside her clothing.”Lawmen believe she was operating with another shoplifter who they say was also seen hiding merchandise with the intent of stealing it.Walker was arrested after she stopped at the cash register to make a small purchase without declaring the items she had taken while being watched by the store’s loss prevention officer. The overall cost of the items was $74.During a search of the suspect following her arrest, police reported finding diazepam and a syringe.
