Repeat 79-year-old offender charged with criminal trespass

by Emily Waldrep

An elderly woman that Woodville Police Officer Lawrence Hicks refers to as a "repeat con artist"was arrested on March 31 after violating a criminal trespass order.

According to police, Patricia Arnett, age 79, of Woodville, has several Criminal Trespass warrants across the city and has been arrested several times. In January a criminal trespass order was filed preventing her from going back to Walmart, due to shoplifting issues.

"She showed up at Walmart and was arrested, despite her age," said Woodville Police Officer Lawrence Hicks. "She is not above the law."

Arnett was charged with Criminal Trespass.
