According to the Fort Oglethorpe Police Department:
Shelly Walker Mason, 33, of Kensington Road in Chickamauga was arrested on Monday, May 7, and charged with possession of a Schedule IV drug and theft by shoplifting.
Officers responded to the Mapco Mart at 3668 Ga. 2 (Battlefield Parkway) at approximately 6 p.m. in regards to a female shoplifter already in custody, reports show.
“The store employee stated that he observed the female (Mason) conceal an item inside her purse while inside the store,” officer Kevin Shadwick wrote in the report. “The employee also handed me several blue pills that he claimed she was trying to get rid of.”
While searching Mason, a glass marijuana pipe and additional blue pills were found inside her purse.
The pills recovered were sent to the Georgia Crime Lab for identification, and Mason was transported to Catoosa County jail without incident.
