Police Captain Paul Forrester tells KSAL News that officers were sent to Dillon’s grocery store, at 2350 Planet Avenue Wednesday evening after staff contacted authorities.

Police say 33-year-old Summer Schulenberg was confronted by employees after she tried to leave the store with over $360 in merchandise she did not pay for. Officers then found 19 narcotic prescription pills that were not hers and a small amount of methamphetmine in her bag.
