An accused shoplifter in North Idaho walked out of a Walmart store as if she had won a shopping spree.
Jennifer L. Dossett of Coeur d’Alene allegedly pushed two carts loaded with 360 items out the door of the Hayden Walmart on Sunday afternoon. The haul was valued at nearly $2,300, according to the Kootenai County Sheriff’s Office.
Dossett, 43, was arrested after deputies were called by store security just after 3:30 p.m.
The woman gave a false identification to deputies, who later identified her as Dossett. She has been booked into the Kooteani County Jail six previous times for driving and drug-related charges.
Dossett was arrested for burglary, grand theft and giving false identification to an officer. She also had an outstanding warrant for her arrest stemming from a theft charge in September at the same store. She made her first court appearance Monday.
