Florida woman shoots up meth, turns Walmart into personal buffet while riding drunk on motorized shopping cart

Daily News, Dec 28, 2015

A Florida woman got a serious case of the munchies after getting high in a Walmart.

Josseleen Elida Lopez, 25, was arrested after raiding a Lecanto Walmart and chomping down on several meals at the retail giant, Citrus County sheriffs said.

Lopez was riding a motorized shopping cart through the shop with a half-empty wine bottle, the loss prevention officer told deputies.

Walmart became a personal buffet for Lopez as she grabbed a sushi package and ate one roll, then put it back on the shelf, deputies said.

The hungry suspect did the same with a package of mini-muffins and cinnamon rolls.

Deputies said she caused $32 in damages after stealing food from the Lecanto Walmart.

She also ate most of a rotisserie chicken sitting on the floor before authorities stopped her hungry wreckage.

The homeless woman ate through $32.36 worth of items, deputies said.

Police found three empty syringes in her bags, which Lopez admitted were for “shooting up meth,” according to the affidavit.

Lopez reportedly devoured most of a rotisserie chicken while sitting on the floor.

She told police that she was “hungry and did not want to take any of the items outside of the store,” but tried eating everything she could while she was still there.

She admitted to officers that she knew she was wrong, but did it anyway.

She was charged with petit theft for stealing the meals and drug possession.
