Over the weekend the Antlers Police Department responded to a call about a woman who had shoplifted beer for Jim Ray’s Quick Stop in Antlers.
Upon officer arrival, Officer Stewart Stanfield made contact with a blond female who was sitting in the front passenger seat of a vehicle. Officer Stanfield also noticed eight cans of Keystone in the back seat that were well in reach of the female.
The female identified herself as Tosha Dillishaw, who is also known as Tosha McPherson, a 28 year old white female of Antlers.
Officer Stanfield then made contact with the store clerk, Marcus Dillishaw, who stated that McPherson had walked into the store around 3:20 a.m., June 29th, and walked out of the store with two 30 packs of Keystone Light, an estimated value of $30.64, without paying for the merchandise.
Dillishaw stated that he had told McPherson that it was past 2 a.m. and he could no longer sell nor allow her to take the beer out of the store.
Dillishaw stated that McPherson had continued to refuse to bring the beer back into the store and after about 5 minutes of trying to reason with her, he decided to call the police. Dillishaw stated that he wanted to press charges.
McPherson was told she was under arrest for Larceny of Merchandise from a retailer and public intoxication. McPherson denied she took the beer and stated that it was someone else that must have taken the beer out of the store.
McPherson was transported and booked into the Pushmataha County Jail without incident. McPherson made bail for $1,200.00.
