RPD: Woman charged with shoplifting found hiding under vehicle

RICHMOND — A Willow Drive woman was charged with felony theft Saturday after Richmond police say she tried to steal a TV from Walmart and then hid under a nearby vehicle.

Stacie L. Lawell, 27, was charged with theft by unlawful taking (over $500) and second-degree possession of a controlled substance.

Police were sent at 3:16 a.m. to Walmart after receiving a report that a suspected shoplifter had fled on foot, according to the report.

A Walmart employee told police that a woman, later identified as Lawell, was seen pushing a 50-inch television from the store without paying for it. The TV was priced at $598.

Lawell received the misdemeanor drug possession charge after officials reported finding a Suboxone strip on her during a search at the Madison County Detention Center.
