Pulaski County Police Department Investigates Theft

Stephanie Burton

The Pulaski County Sheriff’s Department investigated a theft from Twice is Nice on Saturday.

The owner, Kristen Ledden, told police that Stephanie Burton, 31, of San Pierre, was in her store and caught Burton placing a pair of shorts into her purse.  Ledden confronted Burton and asked her to remove the item from her purse, give it back to her and leave the store.  Burton sat on a chair outside the store and Ledden called the Pulaski County Sheriff’s Department.

The shorts reportedly cost $5.00 and when asked why she didn’t pay for the shorts, Burton told police that she would have had to go to the ATM for money.  Burton was given a trespass warning and her vehicle was towed.  The plates on her car were reportedly found to be false and fictitious.

She was arrested on one count of Theft, a Class D Felony.
