Stephanie Carroll, 43, was seen leaving Dollar General near Main Street and Signal Butte Road at about 6 p.m. holding two packages of tattoos she reportedly did not pay for, police said. Police said an employee confronted Carroll in the parking lot but Carroll sped away in her vehicle. The employee obtained the vehicle's license plate number and officers reviewed the store's security-camera recording to identify Carroll, according to police. Officers noticed a woman that matched Carroll's description inside Quik Trip near University Drive and Power Road at about 6:30 p.m., police said. An officer requested for Carroll to step outside the store but Carroll continued walking and started reaching into her backpack. Not knowing what was in the backpack, the officer grabbed Carroll in an attempt to control her and Carroll bit his arm, police said. Police said Carroll continued trying to reach into the backpack and kicked the bag just as officers handcuffed her. The backpack's contents were scattered on the ground, some of which were recognized as merchandise taken from Dollar General, police said. A change purse was also found containing broken pieces of glass, which were later discovered to be a part of a glass pipe, according to police. Carroll told officers that she had used the pipe to smoke methamphetamine on Sunday, police said. Carroll was arrested on suspicion of resisting arrest, possession of drug paraphernalia, aggravated assault on a police officer, destruction of evidence and shoplifting, according to a court document.
