After a 20-year-old Orangeburg woman admitted to taking items from Walmart, she handed over a bag of marijuana, according to a sheriff’s office incident report.

At 4:40 p.m. Thursday, the loss prevention staff at the North Road Walmart called law enforcement after the woman allegedly did not scan a pack of hamburger meat and a jar of spaghetti sauce in the checkout area.

Staff said the woman left the store with the un-scanned items, but returned and took a pack of kiwi fruit.

When deputies spoke with the woman, she admitted to taking the items from Walmart, according to the report.

After admitting to taking the items, she then “pulled out a clear plastic bag of green leafy substance out of her front pocket that’s believed to be marijuana,” the report states.

She then told a deputy that she had funds to pay for the items she allegedly stole, which were valued at $10.97.

Deputies seized the green, leafy substance.

They charged the woman with shoplifting and simple possession of marijuana.
