EATONTON -- An Eatonton woman who authorities say stole baby formula and clothes from the Eatonton Walmart store pleaded guilty in a Putnam County court. Her husband, whom authorities say told store management he was a police officer when she was caught, also pleaded guilty in a Putnam County court.
Jessica Guyton Adams, 30, 174 N. Steel Bridge Road, Eatonton, was charged June 16 with theft by shoplifting, when she was reportedly caught by store employees attempting to leave Eatonton Walmart with a letter stencil set, baby formula and baby clothes without paying for them, according to police reports.
While she was in a back room of the store writing out a confession, her husband, Carl Jude Adams, 35, of the same address, confronted the store manager with a police badge and said he was a police officer.
