Shoplifting leads to narcotics arrest

COTTONWOOD -- Sunday afternoon, Cottonwood Police were called to Walmart for a report that 34-year-old Cottonwood resident Amanda Elizabeth Gaddy had been caught shoplifting.

According to the officer's report, when they arrived they were advised by a Walmart Asset Protection Officer that when they confronted Gaddy in regards to the shoplifting, they saw her hide something in her bra.

Gaddy was placed into custody for shoplifting over $150 worth of merchandise from Walmart. During the investigation, a Cottonwood Officer asked Gaddy what she had hidden in her bra. When Gaddy replied, "Nothing," the officer explained that if she was not honest with him he would have to take her to the jail for her to be searched and the item recovered. Gaddy reached into her bra and removed a bag with a green leafy substance. She said it was marijuana. A search was conducted of Gaddys' purse for any other stolen or illegal items and officers found a plastic container with two plastic bags inside containing a crystallized substance, three pink pills and one empty plastic bag. The crystallized substance was field -tested positive for methamphetamine. The pills were identified as oxycodone.

Gaddy was transported to the Yavapai County Jail on charges of shoplifting, possession of marijuana, possession of dangerous drug, 3-counts of possession of narcotic drug, and possession of drug paraphernalia.
