A woman who tried to trade in old pair of shoes for a new pair without paying for them was given 10 days in jail.
The woman, Stephanie A. Sims, 25, was instructed by General Sessions Judge Larry Ross to serve 10 days of an 11-29 sentence and make $39 restitution for theft. She was also wanted on fugitive from justice warrants for outstanding child support charges. She will sign for her extradition.
Her charges come after Walmart security saw Sims removing price tags from a pair of shoes in the shoe department.
“I saw her remove the price tag from a pair of shoes and then place them on her feet, leaving her old shoes on the floor,” swore the Walmart security employee in the warrant against Sims.
Security then maintains Sims continued removing price tags, taking two pair of shoes and placing them in her purse.
After her thefts in the shoe department, Sims walked over, in her stolen shoes, to the return the department and tried to return an old phone placed in a new case.
“She made a fraudulent refund on a cellphone that was not the correct phone for the box it was contained in,” security said.
The entire theft only amounted to $37 as the three pair of shoes were valued at $21 and the phone at $16.
