When officers arrived they spoke to 20-year-old Jaiden Curren who had been stopped by store security.

She told officers she had stolen several items earlier that day and had the items in her vehicle in the parking lot. She told officers she took the tags off the items, concealed them and left the store.

Officers retrieved those stolen items from the vehicle.

While speaking to her, Curren began pulling additional stolen items out of her duffle bag. Other contents discovered in the bag included; a black container with two baggies inside and a glass smoking device. One baggie contained crystal meth and the other contained orange pills, identified as Amphetamine and Dextroamphetamine.

All of the stolen items were returned to Walmart. Police say Curren stole more than $773 in items.

Curren was arrested on two counts of theft, possession of a controlled substance, possession of meth, and possession of drug paraphernalia.
