On December 15, 2022, troopers responded to the Walmart located at 36 Jerome Drive regarding a shoplifting that had occurred earlier in the day. Troopers learned that a male suspect, later identified as Phillip Plummer, had left the store through an emergency exit without paying for a cart full of merchandise.

It was discovered that Plummer had attempted to push a full cart out of the store’s emergency exit but was apprehended by loss prevention. Plummer was taken into custody by troopers and was found to be in possession of drug paraphernalia. Hoffman had been accompanying Plummer this time as well, but she fled the scene prior to police arrival.

  • Shoplifting Over $1,500 (Felony)
