Pair Stole from Several Walmarts to Sell Items for Fentanyl

A man and woman from Mount Union, Pennsylvania are each facing a multitude of charges after allegedly stealing items from Walmart stores around the state to sell for narcotics.

On May 27 at approximately 8:30 p.m., a male driver with a female passenger in his truck was pulled over by the police for alleged erratic driving.

After stopping the truck, the driver reportedly got out and began to flee. He fell to the ground after trying to jump over the embankment, and when the police caught him, they tazed the man.

Both suspects were placed under arrest for active arrest warrants. They were booked into the Huntingdon County Prison.

The following day, the authorities were issued a search warrant for the vehicle.

According to reports, the search of the vehicle uncovered 95 small baggies suspected of containing fentanyl, a metal cylindrical container with what was believed to be meth crystals, an electronic scale, empty dime baggies, and glass smoking paraphernalia. The police also located a bounty of items they assumed were stolen from Walmart, including a new television.

It was reported that the woman said the man got the television by trading it for fentanyl, and the man blamed the woman for the thefts.

The woman is currently expected to face one felony count of manufacturing, delivering or possession with the intent to deliver, misdemeanor charges of possessing a controlled substance, receiving stolen property, and use of drug paraphernalia. She is being held in lieu of a $150,000 bond.

The man is facing charges on suspicion of felony manufacturing, delivering or possession with the intent to deliver, flight to avoid apprehension, and misdemeanor charges of evading arrest, driving under the influence, intent to possess a controlled substance, and use of drug paraphernalia. He was also cited for traffic-related charges.
