A Henderson woman was charged over the weekend with shoplifting, drug possession and other offenses.

According to Henderson Police, officers responded to a shoplifter call at Wal-Mart around 2:30 Saturday morning where an Asset Protection employee stated they saw 32 year old Jamie Slygh hide merchandise in her purse and then walked out of the store without paying for it. Police say Slygh admitted to shoplifting and then gave officers a false name, address and an Indiana driver’s license that was not hers.

After the 32 year old woman was taken into custody, police reportedly found Clonopin pills lose inside her purse.

Slygh was lodged in the Henderson County Detention Center for Shoplifting Under $500, Identity Theft, Giving Police Officer False Name/Address, Prescription Not in Proper Container, and first degree Possession of a Controlled Substance.

In addition, the Henderson woman was served with warrants for Shoplifting Under $500 and Harassment – Physical Contact – No Injury. In that case, police say she is accused of shoplifting and running out of the store when she ran into an employee and dropped her purse which was turned over to police along with the video surveillance of the incident. Authorities indicate Slygh was positively identified as the shoplifter in that incident and warrants were issued for her arrest.
