If the police reports are correct, a Wisconsin woman recently demonstrated the overwhelming influence that drug addiction can have on the person's behavior. The 30-year-old woman left her 2-year-old child in her car, entered a Kmart store, climbed into the ceiling crawl space and stole drugs from the pharmacy. Because police had already been alerted to her car in the store parking lot, they apprehended the suspect on her way out of store and filed drug charges against her.
In addition to the drug charges, she has been arrested for theft and child neglect. Police allegedly found the woman's child in a safety seat in the back of the vehicle. They gained access through an open moon roof and found the child, apparently in good health. While in the store, the suspect allegedly took a step ladder to the back area of the store near the pharmacy.
