A woman wearing no pants used feminine deodorant spray to fight Virginia convenience store workers who tried to stop her from stealing items earlier this week, police said.
What are the details?
An employee of a Sheetz convenience store on Wyche Road in Stafford told police that store workers were attacked around 5 p.m. Wednesday, the Office of the Stafford County Sheriff reported.
Deputy C.C. Crossett responded to the call about the disturbance at the Sheetz store allegedly pulled off by a woman wearing a green shirt — and no pants, officials said.
Sure enough, arriving deputies saw a woman matching that description sitting in her vehicle at a gas pump, officials said.
The woman — later identified as 43-year-old Ebony Jones — was detained as Crossett spoke with one of the employees who said Jones tried to steal items worth more than $20.
When store employees tried to stop Jones, however, she sprayed the contents of an aerosol can at them and then exited the store, officials said.
Crossett asked Jones about the incident, and she confirmed she tried to steal the items and then sprayed the employees with feminine deodorant, officials said.
Crossett arrested Jones — who’s from Washington, D.C. — for larceny as well as assault and battery, officials said, adding that she was being held at Rappahannock Regional Jail without bond.
“Great job to Deputy Crossett for handling the situation in a cool and calm manner,” the sheriff’s office added.
