Three Citations Issued To Alleged Repeat Shoplifter

A Cookeville woman, who was reportedly warned to stay out of Walmart after she was caught shoplifting, has been cited again for the same crime. And police say 25-year-old Rachel Judith Budinger of Jere Whitson Road was also charged with criminal trespassing and with possession of drug paraphernalia. Walmart officials told Officer Ryan Moore that they observed Budinger taking DVDs and trying to conceal them. She also allegedly had a Ph testing kit in her possession. According to Moore's report, Budinger said that she was an IV drug user and that she had two hypodermic needles in her purse. Moore says the needles were retrieved and disposed of, and he escorted Budinger to the front of the store, where he issued her the citations and warned her once again not to be back on Walmart property.
