Multiple Charges — Billy Toler, 30, of Trezevant was charged with evading arrest, theft under $1,000, and unlawful possession of a firearm, and Kelsey Schenk McKee, 24, of Huntingdon was charged with theft of property under $1,000, both on Nov. 20 in Huntingdon.
According to the report by Officer Richard Crossno, he responded to a call about two shoplifters attempting to leave Walmart in Huntingdon with stolen merchandise. Upon arrival, store security pointed to a man and a woman in the parking lot. The man, later identified as Toler, threw something into a vehicle and then fled on foot into a thicket behind a nearby business. Toler was soon spotted by a sheriff’s deputy and then taken into custody by several officers. Walmart security advised officers that Toler and a female companion, identified as McKee, had taken $92.94 in items and would not stop when approached by security personnel. Officers searched the vehicle, which belonged to McKee, and found a .380 pistol. McKee told officers that the pistol did not belong to her and that she had seen it in Toler’s possession, though she said she thought it was a toy gun. A criminal history check showed that Toler was a convicted felon.
Theft — Brittany Hill, 29, of McKenzie was cited for theft under $1,000 on Nov. 20 in Huntingdon.

Walmart security advised the officers that Hill, who had allegedly failed to scan items in the self-checkout line, was not being cooperative. In the course of the investigation, officers determined that Hill had not paid for $40.40 in merchandise. The items were returned to the store.
