NORTH AUGUSTA — An Augusta woman with nine previous convictions for shoplifting was arrested at the North Augusta Walmart.

Eyvoneda L. Barrett, 47, of the 2000 block of Shirley Avenue, kept a stash of unused Walmart bags in her purse and car, according to a North Augusta Department of Public Safety report released Tuesday.

On the afternoon of Dec. 15, an employee watched her select $143 of merchandise and conceal them in Walmart bags before leaving the store at 1201 Knox Ave., according to the report.

An officer later found more unused Walmart bags in back of the woman’s car, along with the merchandise, the report stated.

After the 8th Time you have to ask

Is it time to take up a new occupation?

Initially I was going to slam the Judges and DA's.

But I ran the name and could see she has served time for convictions.

Starting back around March 2005 she did 2 years inside and 3 years on probation. A sentence which included mandatory Drug testing.

I pulled up a Mugshot used in the Aiken Paper and it is clear she is in bad shape.

I have some pity for the Addicts.
But I strongly feel any addictive narcotic Drug Dealer should have fair & honest trial and if guilty, be put to death by Public execution.

Good Examples like this are needed, but are far and in between in our current society.

Face Recognition

Major retail outlets should band together in a retail security association and establish a national photo database of shoplifters.

When they catch one they should be photographed, put in the database, and issued a legal notification that they are banned from ALL retail stores nationwide of all of the retailers belonging to the association.

The retailers should then install a face recognition camera system in every store entrance that has instant access to the photo database that would immediately notify store security if they try to enter the store.

The cost of such a system would easily be paid for over the long run by the reduction in losses to shoplifting because MOST of these shoplifters are REPEAT OFFENDERS.

The courts will never stop these people so it's time for the "cattleman's association" to take matters into their own hands. I am tired of paying the increased retail prices to cover the loss due to these dirtbag shoplifters in addition to all of the other dirtbags the government forces me to support.

I, too, was thinking that the courts and the jails should get out of the shoplifting business. The business owner should take matters into his own hands and try to minimize losses. Police should not respond to calls unless the suspect threatened with or used a deadly weapon.

Georgia has already started this with gasoline filling stations. Police no longer respond to "drive-off"calls.

I don't think there is such a thing as drive-offs anymore. You either pre-pay and the pump shuts off at that amount, or you use a credit card.

Drug addicts use shoplifting as a way to support thier habit. If we will put drug dealers in jail for life, we can greatly reduce crime. After all, drug dealers kill people with thier products.

Drug dealers

They shall be "done away with" I promise this. Revelation 21:8 tells us this quite plainly. Read it in the original King James Version. The word Sorcerers used in this verse is Pharmaceous in the Greek, which means illicit drugs or person who profits by "spell giving potion". This word is the root of the english word Pharmacy. Use a little common sense here, it's not referring to an actual pharmacy, which helps people. When you buy medication from a pharmacy and you take the medication AS PRESCRIBED, it helps people tremendously. This verse is specifically addressing those who HARM others by providing them "Spell giving potions". This has been going on since mankind has existed. By the definition, I wouldn't think marijuana would be included because it isn't a potion of different ingredients.

Also, on a personal opinion, I don't think anyones going to be destroyed because they smoke a little weed and commit no greater offenses. The dealers of weed, I don't know. All of that is up to God, so I wouldn't personally risk it. Bottom line is, God is the ultimate judge and will do so righteously. But He has told us specifically some of those that won't make it. Just like the Bible says Drunkards shall not inherit the kingdom of heaven. It also says WE (God's people) are not people of "Stong drink". But it doesn't say a person who drinks occassionally is in any trouble. We must utilize a very special gift God gave us.....common sense.

Speaking of gas drive off not happening anymore

I have seen some news stories lately where the bad guys will park over the underground storage tank and pump as much out as they want. Sometimes it has been 1000s of gallons. Talk about a rolling bomb!

There is too much money to be made. Lock one up and two take their place. This is the issue in Latin and South America; there is so much money involved that judges and law enforcement are overwhelmed by the amount of money they can make to look the other way.

The smarter play is to go after demand; either through legalization or heavy penalties on the users, whichever the American people decide. I prefer the legalization route where we can regulate and tax it, funneling the proceeds and law enforcement savings into education, treatment, and general prevention.
No drugs to sell; and the dealers/producers/cartels/criminals go broke.

Gasoline Drive Offs

yes, It'sAnotherDay, but the gas station operators put in the pre-pay pumps after and because the police announced they would no longer be responding to gasoline drive off calls from filling stations.

Other retailers prone to shoplifting would have to start being creative.

Addicted To Drugs Or Shoplifting?

"......a stash of unused Walmart bags". So, where did this thief get all these bags. I know she didn't legally shop, does that mean someone???? took the bags and gave them to our shoplifter? Hmmm, sounds fishy to me!

Surely one more chance wouldn't hurt. And we can almost be assured she'll get one. Isn't this a 'nonviolent crime'???

LL, I disagree

Pay at the pump became technologically feasible and practical, so it was a logical next step. It is efficient at moving more vehicles through and saves labor to boot. It was initially tried in the late 70's-early 80's, but the technology just wasn't mature enough to handle it.

Correction. Thinking back it was more like mid to late 70's. It was during the transition from full service to self service.
