Officer Deshazo was called to Woodville Wal-Mart around 9 a.m. on Friday morning in regard to a suspected shoplifting complaint. When he arrived on scene, he met with employees and was pointed to a vehicle in the parking lot that was attempting to leave.
Deshazo made contact with the vehicle, and discovered it was occupied by two females. After interviewing the occupants and searching the vehicle, multiple items were found that matched the description of the missing Wal-Mart items.
The passenger, Amy Jo Davis, 34 years old, of Doucette, was arrested and booked into jail. Officers then discovered that Davis had used her sister's identity to try to mislead them and hide her outstanding warrants for possession of a controlled substance and withdrawn bondsmen. In addition to the failure to identify charge and outstanding warrants, officers discovered several more stolen items from Wal-Mart that had been hidden in Davis' clothing.
Davis was charged with theft of property, failure to identify, class A misdemeanor /possession of a controlled substance, fugitive from justice, withdrawal of bondsmen, F-3 and Theft of property class B misdemeanor. Her combined bond is set at $13,000.
