In Riverton Police Department reports Thursday to Friday morning:
- Mary Addison, 50, of Arapahoe, was arrested on warrants for stolen property and fraud at about 3:40 p.m. Thursday in the 100 block of North Third Street East.
- Loretta SunRhodes, 33, of Arapahoe, and Jason Antelope, 29, of Riverton, were arrested early Friday after reportedly stealing more than $130 in items from Walmart.
According to reports, the suspects had fled the store at about 1 a.m. Friday with a shopping cart full of unpaid property. Officials said the two got into a blue-colored minivan and headed north on Wyoming Highway 789 at a high rate of speed. Riverton Police Department Capt. Eric Murphy said the driver of the minivan also failed to activate the vehicle's headlights, but officers were able to see the minivan's brake lights turn at the highway's intersection with Honor Farm Road.
"We found the vehicle parked and unattended on Pleasant Drive," Murphy said. "We could hear people inside the house, so we made contact with them."
Officers reportedly asked whether the people knew who had been driving the minivan.
"They said it was Loretta and Jason and pointed down the hall," Murphy said. "So they went down the hall and pulled them out of the bedroom."
He said SunRhodes recorded a blood-alcohol content of .16, while Antelope's was a .10. She was arrested for shoplifting, resisting arrest and criminal trespass, as Murphy said she had been barred from Walmart previously. Antelope was arrested for shoplifting, resisting arrest and reckless driving for failing to activate the minivan's headlights.
