A 20-year-old woman was arrested on Tuesday after allegedly riding a motorized shopping cart through a Florida Wal-Mart with a half-empty bottle of wine, and taking and consuming food from store shelves, according to the Citrus County Sheriff’s Office.

Deputies responded to the Lecanto Wal-Mart after a store employee called the Sheriff’s Office to report a shoplifter, an arrest report said.

The employee observed a woman acting “suspicious” inside the store while driving the motorized shopping cart. He told deputies that he saw a half-empty bottle of wine in the cart and began following her, according to the report.

During the course of his surveillance, the suspect was alleged by the employee to have opened a sushi package and consume a piece before placing it back on the shelf. She then did the same with packages of mini muffins and cinnamon rolls, before eating most of a rotisserie chicken on the sales floor, the employee told deputies.

He accused her of eating and drinking more than $30 of food and wine.

Deputies then took the suspect, Josseleen Elida Lopez, into custody and transported her to the Citrus County Detention Center facility to be booked, authorities said.

Investigators then searched two backpacks in her possession and discovered a red flashlight that contained two empty syringes, the report stated. Another empty syringe was found in a purse.

Lopez allegedly admitted to police that “she used the needles to shoot up meth,” and that she had cleaned them out with water so no residue would be left over, the report stated.

She also told them she was hungry, but did not want to take the items out of the store. “She further stated that she knew what she was doing was wrong, but she did it anyway,” the report said.

Lopez faced charges of retail petit theft and possession of drug paraphernalia.
