GODFREY, Ill. (KMOV.com) – An Alton woman is facing a felony charge for stealing after police say she tried to leave a Walmart store without paying for her merchandise.

Police said they responded to the Walmart store in the 6600 block of Godfrey Road in Godfrey, Illinois around 5 p.m. in reference to the theft. Upon arrival, they found Haley L. Duckett, 33, with approximately $70 worth of merchandise in her purse. A loss prevention officer at the store detained Duckett until police arrived.

After determining the suspect had not paid for the merchandise, police took her into custody.

The State’s Attorney’s Office reviewed the charges and determined that Duckett qualified for an enhanced felony offense due to a previous conviction for retail theft on September 15th.

Duckett is being held at the Madison County Jail on a $15,000 bond.
