A North St. Louis County woman was arrested for shoplifting and trespassing at the St. Peters Walmart with her 10-year-old daughter.
Kimyette M. Williams, 33, of the 500 block of Dornoch Drive in Glasgow Village, was charged with felony theft, first-degree trespassing and possession of drug-related items.
St. Peters Police said Williams walked outside, passing all check-out lanes at the , with a grocery cart full of items.
Williams told police she was on the phone with a friend, trying to find out if she had enough money in the bank for the items. Williams said she was “moving too fast and made a mistake.”
St. Peters Police said that at times, Williams’ daughter was with her and at other times she was with her father elsewhere in the store.
During an investigation, the St. Peters police officer said he smelled marijuana and asked Williams if she had any illegal substances. Williams told the officer she had a roach in her purse. The officer found a plastic baggie with marijuana inside in her purse.
Police said Williams was arrested at a Ferguson Walmart in 2011 for stealing and endangering the welfare of a child. She had been issued a trespass notice, notifying her that she was not to enter any Walmart store, according to court documents.
Bail for Williams was set at $5,000.
