According to a police report, a Walmart staffer noticed a half-empty bottle of wine in the cart. The loss prevention officer then saw Lopez open some sushi, eat a piece and then put it back on the shelf, the arrest report states.
She reportedly did the same thing with a package of mini muffins and cinnamon rolls, then ate most of a rotisserie chicken.
When police arrived, they found Lopez had two backpacks, one of which contained three empty syringes.
According to reports, Lopez told deputies she was hungry but didn't want to take anything outside of the store. Deputies said Lopez told them she knew what she was doing was wrong, but she did it anyway.
She was booked into jail on charges of retail petit theft and possession of drug paraphernalia.
