Police Blotter: Erratic Driver At Walmart Blames Left-Wing Agenda; 3 Women Steal Over $4,000 In Fragrances

  • Friday, October 28, 2022

Police were called to Walmart at 3550 Cummings Hwy. where an employee said a white dually truck almost hit multiple cars in the parking lot. According to other employees at Walmart, the driver is a regular in the store and is constantly disrespectful and drives erratically. The officer found the driver of the truck at the self-checkout counter as he was paying. The officer asked the man what the issue was that evening and he said he had gotten into an argument with another driver as they were coming from Georgia. Along the way, the other vehicle's driver flipped him off which in turn enraged the man. This argument followed all the way into the Walmart parking lot where the man almost struck multiple vehicles. The officer explained to the man his actions were unacceptable and as such Walmart would be trespassing him from all properties for two years. He took offense to this and said it was all left-wing oriented before leaving the property.
