Two women accused of stealing cookies and a candy bar from Wal-Mart are facing drug charges after police say they found heroin, fentanyl, “fake heroin” and 28 used syringes in their possession.
Myrtle Beach police were called around 11:30 a.m. Tuesday to the Seaboard Street Wal-Mart where loss prevention officers told police they “physically observed” the two women conceal cookies and a candy bar, valued at $4.72, in their bags.
Police say they also found in their possession, “several bags and slips with powder substances,” the needles, a lighter and “medical scissor tongs commonly used to heat up narcotics.”
Two white pills, identified as Methylin, a stimulant used to treat ADHD and narcolepsy, were also recovered, according to an incident report.

Twenty-four-year-old Brittany Morgan Smith of Myrtle Beach was charged with shoplifting, possessing heroin and possessing Methylin, which is considered a schedule II controlled substance. Smith had eight used needles in her bag, according to the report.
Police say the white powder found in 32-year-old Alicia Michelle Rozier’s possession field tested positive for fentanyl. Twenty used syringes and several other bags containing powder substances that did not test positive for narcotics were also found in Rozier’s bag, according to the report. Police say Rozier admitted it was “fake heroin.”
Rozier, who is listed in court records as being homeless, was charged with shoplifting and possessing fentanyl.
