GLASGOW — Glasgow police officers continue to make arrests for shoplifting.

On Friday, Sarah Leanne Damron, 22, of Bowling Green, was arrested for shoplifting at Walmart.

Damron was charged with theft by unlawful taking (shoplifting).

The store's loss prevention officers told police officers they had observed Damron and Amy Nicole Burton, 40, also of Bowling Green, conceal merchandise on her persons and attempt to leave the store without paying for the merchandise, according to a Glasgow Police Department report.

Damron was lodged in the Barren County Detention Center and was released on Saturday, according to the jail's website.

Burton was cited for theft by unlawful taking under $500 (shoplifting).

The store's loss prevention officers told police they observed Richey cut merchandise out of packages in the hardware section and conceal the items. The total value of the items shoplifted was $115.74.

Richey had slurred speech and behaved as though he was under the influence of some type of drug, the police report stated.

Richey was belligerent and cursed loudly enough for Walmart customers to hear him. He also cursed in Walmart at the officer, as well as while he was being escorted to the police car, the report stated.

While in the car, Richey also appeared to be trying to kick the door and stated he was trying to get the police officer's attention.
