A Walterboro police officer said when he found a couple accused of stealing candy from Wal-Mart cooking meth in their car.
The Post and Courier newspaper reported that a Wal-Mart employee told police that Alvin Walling and the woman he was with, Kelsie Ammons, were shoplifting candy from the store and possibly had the stolen items in their car.
Authorities say that upon searching Walling’s car, police found what they at first thought to be an open container of alcohol. It turned out to be methamphetamine.
Walling and Ammons were both arrested for manufacturing methamphetamine. The federal Drug Enforcement Administration was tasked to investigate the case further.
