Felony Friday: TTPD is Looking For Sahara Sims
Under normal circumstances, stealing a pair of shoes is a misdemeanor, however, when they start stacking up things can get very serious, very quickly. Such is the case this week with the featured felon from the Texarkana Texas Police Department, Sahara Sims.
It's Felony Friday from the Texarkana Texas Police Department, and here's the story as recorded on the TTPD Facebook Page:
We are looking for Sahara Sims for this week's Felony Friday. She is wanted for stealing a pair of shoes from Plato's Closet last month after she was captured on video doing a swap-a-roo with her old beat up shoes with a nice new pair of Nikes. She was considerate enough to put her old shoes in the box that she left on the shelf, but the store understandably didn't consider that a fair trade.
Ordinarily, a theft of something worth only $45 would be a misdemeanor, but this isn't Sahara's first rodeo. Because she's had a number of previous convictions for theft, the charge is automatically upgraded to a felony.
She also has several felony warrants for failing to show up for court in January on some previous charges that include drugs and firearms arrests. In all, she has seven felony warrants.
