She told police she saw Reed select three key rings, valued at $12, and put them in her purse. Reed paid for the items in her cart, but did not pay for the key rings, and she was stopped by the store employee and taken to the loss prevention office.
Police arrived and Reed was arrested and taken to the Myrtle Beach Jail. She was charged with shoplifting enhancement due to her previous charges.
In Reed’s previous arrest on Feb. 23, police said they were called at 4 p.m. to Wal-Mart after Reed was seen removing items from a store shelf and she tried to walk out without paying.
She was stopped by a loss prevention officer and taken to the loss prevention office where police were called.
Reed revealed she had also taken a small bottle of olive oil in addition to a 16-piece plate set once she was escorted to the loss prevention office during the Feb. 23 incident, according to the report.
The total value of the items was reported to be just over $50, police said.
