Woman in California Arrested for Licking Almost $2,000 Worth of Groceries


Some people are truly disgusting.

With a horrific pandemic currently going on, Americans are simply trying to make the best of a bad situation. Many people are being laid off from their jobs and kids aren’t able to go to school.

Then, you have 53-year old Jennifer Wallace from South Lake Tahoe, California. Police arrested Wallace and charged her with vandalism for allegedly licking almost $2,000 worth of groceries inside a grocery store.

Wallace apparently had no intention of paying for the groceries.

Unfortunately for the grocery store, it was decided the groceries couldn’t be sold for fear of contamination and they were thrown out. It’s a real shame especially when you consider there are parts of the country dealing with food shortages.

Take a look:

NBC has the details on this heinous act:

Police arrested a Northern California woman and accused her of having lickedand ruined about $1,800 worth of groceries near the Nevada border, authorities said Wednesday.

Officers were called to a Safeway in South Lake Tahoe on Tuesday over a "report of a customer 'licking' groceries inside of the store," police said.

Jennifer Walker, 53, of South Lake Tahoe was booked on suspicion of felony vandalism.

"The employee informed the officers that all the items in the suspect's shopping cart were deemed unsellable due to the cross-contamination," according to a South Lake Tahoe police statement.

Items that had to be destroyed included costume jewelry, meat and liquor, police said.
