Local News

A Wichita Falls woman is in jail after police say they found a marijuana pipe — along with debit cards, a social security card, and a passport that wasn’t hers — inside her car.

Shannon Allen was accused of a stealing from the Walmart on Lawrence road Tuesday morning. Loss prevention and police later determined no theft had occurred but the Walmart still decided to bar Allen from the store.

When police escorted her to her car, they saw a marijuana pipe on the driver’s seat, upon further investigation, a passport, social security card, and two debit cards were found. None of the items found were issued to Allen. 

It was later determined that the social security card and passport found inside the car belonged to someone already in the Wichita County Jail. 

Police contacted to the person inside the jail who said she did not have permission to have the credentials.

Allen did not know the names listed on the debit cards.
