A Lecanto woman on a motorized shopping cart is accused of opening wine bottles in Walmart, drinking the alcohol and then going through the aisles eating food out of packages.

Josseleen Lopez, 25, is charged with petit theft and possession of drug paraphernalia.

According to Citrus County deputies, a loss prevention officer inside the Lecanto Walmart spotted Lopez riding a motorized cart with a half empty bottle of wine in the cart.

Store security continued surveillance on Lopez and say they watched her open a sushi package, consume a piece and then put it back on the shelf, an arrest affidavit states.

Security noted Lopez continued to do the same with a package of mini muffins and cinnamon rolls.

Lopez was later seen consuming an entire rotisserie chicken while on the sales floor, deputies said.

An arrest report shows by the end of the ordeal, Lopez had consumed two bottles of wine.

According to deputies, when they arrested Lopez, they found her to be in possession of syringes.

She is being held on $1,000 bond.
