ROCK HILL — A South Carolina woman accused of stuffing stolen items from Walmart in her bra flashed a Rock Hill police officer Monday, police say.
Angela Lucille Wentz, 38, of 164 Freeman Road in Blacksburg, is charged with public disorderly conduct, receiving stolen goods and a narcotics violation, according to Rock Hill police documents. She was held Tuesday morning at the city jail on a $4,000 bond.
A customer at the Walmart on Dave Lyle Boulevard told officers that a woman with a baby was harassing other shoppers, a Rock Hill police report states. Police found Wentz and saw an object “protruding out of the underside of Wentz’s bra,” according to the report.
When police asked Wentz what it was, she became agitated and reached under her shirt to grab the object, the report states. As an officer approached her, Wentz exposed her breast. When she removed her hands from her shirt, police could not see the object. She denied that anything was there.
Officers arrested Wentz, warning her that she could face additional charges if they found contraband on her. That’s when she reached inside the back of her pants and took out a Fentanyl transdermal patch, a Schedule II drug used to treat chronic pain. They also found that she was hiding two $25 bottles of perfume and an earring necklace set.
The items had Wentz’s blood on them from a cut on her finger. She claimed she didn’t steal the items and threw out the receipt.
Her 7-month-old daughter was given to a woman who arrived at the store to take Wentz home. Wentz’s criminal history shows a prior conviction for a September narcotics violation.
