A woman who tried to bag more than she bought at Wal-Mart was arrested by Brownwood police Thursday.
Deanne Egan, 33, of Brownwood used one of the self-checkout systems at Wal-Mart to purchase various items totaling $79.55.
But according to the police report filed by officer Ray Slayton, Egan placed an additional 78 clothing, school and office supply items that she didn’t scan in bags. The bagged items that weren’t checked totaled $507.90 with tax.
Enemencio “Cookie” Jaso, loss prevention specialist at Wal-Mart, called police about 4 p.m. Thursday. Slayton reported that when he arrived at the store to question Egan, Jaso provided two register tapes for him to view — one with just the items Egan had purchased and the second with the items that were bagged, but not purchased.
Egan had an outstanding warrant for failure to appear in court and “bail jumping.”
She remained in jail Friday morning and no bond had been set at that time.
