ROSEBURG, Ore. -- A Roseburg woman who was banned from all Wal Marts for life was arrested again after she stole merchandise from the mega retailer and an office supply chain, police said.
Roseburg police were called to the Office Depot at around 6:30 p.m. on Wednesday to the report of a theft in progress.
Police said the suspect, later identified as Allison Cristine Clanton, 35, of Roseburg, dropped the merchandise, which store officials say was valued at over $1,000, and took off in a white Ford Mustang.
Authorities said that they were then notified of another theft that had just happened at Wal Mart, and again, the woman had allegedly dumped merchandise as she left. Reports from that scene allege that Clanton drove off at a high rate of speed, almost hitting some pedestrians.
That's when officers discovered that Clanton had been arrested before for allegedly stealing from a Wal Mart and was banned from all of the company's stores for life.
A Roseburg officer went to the area of her residence in the 1200 block of SE Mill Street, where he spotted the Mustang and stopped it.
Clanton was arrested and charged with several crimes, including two counts of first degree theft, hit and run and first degree criminal trespass. Officers also charged her with driving while suspended and driving uninsured.
During a search of Clanton and her vehicle, officers said they discovered some of the property from Office Depot, along with meth, marijuana and two prescription medications, leading to more charges.
Clanton was lodged in the Douglas County Jail.
