Authorities in Winter Haven, Florida are searching for a woman who was captured on video throwing a product at a Walmart employee after the woman was prevented from leaving the store with a basket full of items. Winter Haven police are reporting that the incident occurred on February 2nd at 355 Cypress Gardens Blvd. According to the report, the woman went through the self-check out line with a basket full of items. The woman then scanned the items using the self-check out console but failed to pay for the items before heading for the door. Two employees then pulled the woman aside. That’s when the woman screamed “Get the manager, Kim. I have an employee discount and I get my groceries for free.” She then walked back through the self-checkout area and grabbed a doll that was placed on a nearby shelf and threw it at one of the employees.

The employee was struck in the face with the item and was said to have sustained a small cut to her upper lip. The suspect eventually left the store empty handed. Authorities are now searching for the woman. She is described as having green hair and green ink on her hands, possibly from recently dying her hair. If you recognize this woman you are asked to call 863-662-0392.
