Murfreesboro Police were called to Walmart on Old Fort Parkway in reference to an attempted theft. Once on the scene, they learned that a woman in a motorized shopping cart was observed driving through the store concealing items while operating the chair.

During a confrontation between the women and a Walmart employee, one of the two females stated, "We weren't even stealing when we came in." The alleged items that were reportedly collected inside the store were returned. At that point, the women were asked to leave.

The female who was not in the motorized shopping cart allegedly stated to the Walmart employee, "You're dead if I see you on the streets."

After the reported threat was made, the women walked to a parked Volvo and drove away as one threw a glass bottle towards the Walmart worker. The black Volvo had a temporary tag on the back, so no license number could be obtained and no arrest was made.
