A Columbus woman was arrested last night after allegedly trying to steal more than $900 from a local department store.
Lt. Matt Harris, spokesman for the Columbus Police Department, says that officers were called to the Carson’s Department store on 25th Street at about 7 p.m. A woman, identified as 39-year-old Tina M. Spears, had allegedly taken a large amount of merchandise out of the store without paying for it. She allegedly became combative with police when confronted.
She was also found to have several outstanding warrants for failing to show up in court. She is being accused of theft and being held on warrants including failing to appear in Bartholomew County courts on charges including unlawful possession of a syringe, driving while suspended, possession of drug paraphernalia, conversion and a probation violation.
