A Schuylkill County woman was arrested last week after getting caught shoplifting at the Walmart store in Hometown.

Rush Township police say Luisa Perez, 23, of Port Carbon, was busted stealing automobile air fresheners and some motor oil from that Walmart location on April 14.

Store security personnel nabbed Perez before she could get away.

Schuylkill County Woman Charged with Violating Stay at Home Order After Getting Caught Shoplifting

While Rush Township PD was investigating the incident at the Hometown Walmart, they learned Perez had previously been banned from the store. Perez had been given a written notification of her exile from that Walmart.

She’s not the only one who’s been banned from this store. Previous police reports indicate the store has a lengthy list of shoppers who aren’t allowed on that property. It’s not clear why Perez is banned from the store.

It could have something to do with a retail theft charge against her back in November 2019. That’s just a presumption, of course.

In addition to retail theft and criminal trespass charges, Rush Township PD also threw in a charge of violating the Disease Prevention and Control Law of 1955. That’s the law you technically break when you violate Gov. Tom Wolf’s draconian Stay at Home order in response to the Chinese virus pandemic.

Wolf placed Schuylkill County under said order on April 1 and earlier this week extended it until May 8.

Charges against Perez were filed before District Judge Stephen Bayer but no court date has been set and she has not entered a plea.

This is only the latest tale from Schuylkill County Woman. For more, check out:
