Woman covers for alleged tax software shoplifter

Posted: February 15, 2013 - 12:04pm

An Alabama woman was detained and arrested Thursday for obstructing governmental operations at Walmart on Skyline Drive after a woman she accompanied to the store allegedly shoplifted tax software.

Conway police were dispatched to the store around 4:15 p.m. following a report of a woman who had concealed and left the store with at least three copies of Turbo Tax. The unknown suspect left the parking lot in a blue Dodge minivan with a Virginia license plate.

Loss prevention officers were able to detain a second woman allegedly involved in the incident, identified as Gayla D. Shrader, 56, of Alabama.

While talking with police, Shrader refused to identify the other female who had left the scene. According to a police report, she told police she didn’t know who she was with and would not help.

When asked how long they had been in the state, Shrader reportedly replied that she and her friend had been in Arkansas for “a couple of days” and were trying to find work.

When the officer asked Shrader how she had traveled from state to state in a rental car with the woman without knowing her name, the woman refused to give any more information.

Police have contacted the rental agency in an attempt to identify the woman who fled the scene.Shrader was transported to Faulkner County jail and cited for obstructing governmental operations.
