Suspected shoplifter accused of shoving clerk

Posted: Updated:

A 22-year-old woman is accused of shoplifting from the Woodland Walmart store.

Police responded to a report of a shoplifter fighting with staff on Thursday night.

When officers arrived they found that store security had Bobbie Scholle in custody for shoplifting.

Store workers had found Scholle in a stall in the women's restroom and that it sounded like she was opening packages of merchandise while continually flushing the toilet, police said.

When she came out of the stall, an assistant manager asked her to remove he items she had not paid for from her purse.

Scholle refused and shoved the manager into a wall before running off, detectives said.

The manager followed her outside and she was eventually detained.

Scholle was found to be possession of an estimated $250 in store merchandise that had not been paid for, investigators said.

She was arrested and booked into the Cowlitz County jail on charges of second degree robbery and third degree assault, both felonies.
