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.
