JPD: Women hid more than $100 worth of groceries in purse | Crime
A couple of women arrested Tuesday for shoplifting must have had a pretty big purse.
Jonesboro police say 24-year-old Tempestt A. Baggett of Conway and 25-year-old Alisha Ivy of Jonesboro hid more than $100 worth of meat and beauty supplies in the false bottom of Baggett's purse.
According to the police report, Phil Brummett of Kroger, 1825 S. Caraway Rd., says he observed the two women taking items and concealing them in their purses. When police searched the bags they found several packages of lunch meat, baby food, baby oil, a pacifier, hair moisturizer, cocoa butter and a package of ribeye steaks.
Baggett and Ivy were arrested and charged with shoplifting. Baggett was also cited for nonpayment of fines and revocation of probation.
