A Tennessee woman is accused of stealing a purse and taking a cell phone and a large number of prescription pills.
Vicke Walker, 32, of Waverly, Tennessee, was arrested by Webster Parish Sheriff’s deputies Wednesday, Jan. 13, for theft and four warrants. The warrants include two from WPSO for driving under suspension and no seatbelt, a warrant from the Shreveport Police Department for driving while intoxicated and one warrant from the Claiborne Parish Sheriff’s Office for failure to appear. No bond has been set.
Deputy John Lewis Jr. was dispatched to Wally’s Truck Stop in Minden in reference to a reported theft. Lewis made contact with the complainant who said she was riding with Walker and another passenger in the vehicle, along with someone who was in another vehicle. Deputies say when they stopped at a truck stop on Goodwill Road, she got out of the vehicle to talk to the driver in the other vehicle. The driver of the vehicle the victim was in drove away with her purse still inside, according to reports.
When they arrived at their destination, Walker took the victim’s purse inside. Walker then left the residence, according to reports, with the victim’s purse.
Deputies say Walker told them the purse was still at the residence.
The purse was found where Walker indicated, but the victim told police her cell phone and a large number of pills, later identified as Klonopin, were missing from her purse.
Walker was then placed under arrest on the above charges and transported to Bayou Dorcheat Correctional Center for booking.
