Lynne Wilson, 41, of Palm City, is accused of returning items she hadn’t paid for Sept. 19 at a Wal-Mart Supercenter and then using a gift card to buy other items. When investigators stopped her, she said, “I have a problem, I have a problem.”
Asked if she had anything illegal on her, Wilson pulled a small amount of cocaine from her right front pocket. Investigators also turned up a clear straw with cocaine residue on it in her back pocket.
Police listed the value of the goods she took at $40.28, including a Tim McGraw CD, a DVD, two dozen highlighters and a pair of sunglasses.
Wilson faces charges including possession of cocaine, possession of drug paraphernalia and retail theft.
She told investigators she was a teacher at Treasure Coast High School in Port St. Lucie. St. Lucie County School District spokeswoman Janice Karst said Wilson has been removed the classroom pending the investigation by law enforcement.
