Carson woman faces felony after shoplifting arrest

A Carson City woman accused of shoplifting $84 in items from the Gardnerville Walmart on Thursday is facing felony drug charges.

Ann Hurt, 36, was arrested after store security watched her scan only 10 of the 17 items she had in her cart and try to walk out of the store.

Deputies took her into custody at 2:30 p.m. for the shoplifting and an alternative sentencing violation out of Carson City.

However, after she was booked a search revealed she allegedly had 5.2 grams of methamphetamine hidden in her bra.

She is being held in Douglas County jail in lieu of $31,000 facing charges of trafficking and possession of a controlled substance.

She is scheduled to appear in East Fork Justice Court on Monday.
