General Arrest 03 blue 300-MADISONVILLE, Ky. (7/17/14) — Madisonville Police were dispatched to Walmart for a theft in progress Wednesday, July 16.

According to the Madisonville Police report, after officers arrived at Walmart, they were informed Sara Jo Mayer, 31, Madisonville, had left the store allegedly without paying for merchandise totaling $131.33.

Officers were also advised that Mayer was riding on a mobile cart and concealed some items in her purse and a frozen pie behind her feet. WalMart's asset protection was able to identify Mayer’s vehicle, and a traffic stop was conducted.

Mayer was charged with theft by unlawful taking under $500, prescription controlled substance not in original container, first offense and promoting contraband, first degree.
