Jan 23, 2018

A Mississippi woman with nine outstanding arrest warrants was arrested in the Wareham Walmart on Monday after allegedly attempting to steal $477 worth of merchandise from the store.

At 1:30 p.m., Wareham Police Officers Calib Larue and George Chandler responded to Wal-Mart where the shoplifting was in progress. The woman, 51-year-old Rosalind Williams, began running through the store until she was apprehended.

She was placed under arrest and provided a false name and identifications to the police officers until she was transported to the station, where continued investigation led to the discovery of her true identity. Williams is from Tupelo, Mississippi and was visiting family in the area.

Williams had nine outstanding arrest warrants issued with regard to previous felony theft incidents, five of which were issued in Massachusetts, four in Alabama and one in Rhode Island.

Williams has been charged with larceny over $250 as a result of the incident at Wal-Mart and has been held in custody with regard to the outstanding arrest warrants. The out-of-state warrants will each have a charge of fugitive from justice applied to each warrant. She was arraigned at Wareham District Court on Jan. 22.
