Woman cited for theft of goods

A Shreveport woman was cited for attempting to take items from a Blanchard store without paying for them last Friday, Aug. 1.

At about 12:21 p.m., Blanchard police officers were dispatched to the Dollar General Store located at 102 N. Main St. for a theft complaint.

Shelley Tullis, the manager, said she saw the suspect, Stacy Nicole Reese, 35, of 5633 Crystal Drive, Shreveport, take items and place inside a large purse before exiting the store without paying of them.

The items included peanut butter, red beans and rice, garlic powder, lemon pepper, Bic lighters and hot dogs. The total value of the stolen items was $14.25.

Officer G. Allen saw the suspect enter the back seat of a white Honda Accord and saw Reese dump the contents of the purse onto the floor before asking her to step out of the vehicle.

Reese said she took the items because times are very hard and she needed food for her family.

She was taken to the Blanchard Police Department, where she was willing to give a written statement to the fact that she took the items.

Reese was issued a misdemeanor summons for theft of goods and released to appear in Caddo District Court.

One million dollars down the drain to pay for a special session of the Louisiana legislature. And all for naught.
