Tampa Bay’s Morning Krewe

Weekdays 5:30AM - 10:00AM

A woman in North Carolina got stuck in a sticky situation after allegedly shoplifting from a Walmart.

Melinda Reeves was caught on camera stuffing merchandise into her purse without paying for it. She managed to get out of the store without being caught, but after reviewing the security footage, police realized she had gotten into the trunk of her car in the parking lot. They decided to check and see if she was still in there…she was. She was also covered in Mountain Dew that she had stolen.

She explained that it was so hot in the trunk that she needed to keep cool, which is why she was pouring Mountain Dew all over herself.

In total, she stole around $20 in goods.
