A Walmart loss prevention officer told police the 15-year-old and Davonte D. Morris, 18, had bagged numerous items inside the store and then tried to push the shopping cart filled with $446 worth of merchandise out the store’s grocery exit. When the loss prevention officer tried to detain them at the exit, Morris stopped, but the girl ran toward the Super 8.
Perkins police Officer Marty Curran searched the interior of the Super 8 without finding the girl. As he was leaving, he learned she had gone into a restroom at Mad River Harley-Davidson. Curran and the female Walmart loss prevention officer entered the restroom, where they found the girl in a stall, sitting on the toilet with her feet up. She was handcuffed and escorted back to Walmart. The loss prevention officer then signed theft charges against Morris and the girl.
Morris was taken to the Erie County jail, and the girl was transported to the Erie County Juvenile Detention Home.
