A Ringgold woman found herself in handcuffs after reportedly stealing some baby clothes from Walmart.
Christin Brooke Morgan, 26, of the 700 block of Dallas Road, was arrested and charged with theft of goods, possession of Schedule II CDS (oxycodone) and on a bench warrant for theft of goods. Bond for the theft of goods charge is $750, with the bench warrant set at $500. No bond was available as of press time for the possession charge.
Minden police chief Steve Cropper says a loss prevention employee from Walmart contacted his department in reference to a reported theft.
“We were notified by the department store that she’d attempted to steal about $45 worth of clothing,” he said. “We placed her under arrest and during a search of her personal items, they located some oxycontin pills on her person.”
Cropper says she is four months pregnant.
The arrest was made by Officer First Class Ben Allen and Officer Mitch Hackett.
Morgan was booked at the Minden Police Department and transported to Bayou Dorcheat Correctional Center.
