SHALLOTE, NC (WECT) – Two housekeepers at a Days Inn in Shallotte are accused of stealing a guest’s Xanax pills, reports show.
Arresting Officer Cory McLamb with the Shallotte Police Department wrote in his arrest report that he arrived at the Days Inn Tuesday in reference to stolen pills. When he arrived, he spoke to the victim, who claimed that his Xanax had been stolen, and that the only people who had been in his room were family members and housekeepers.
The pills were subsequently found in the possession of housekeeper Katherine Elizabeth Walton, 33, of Supply, who claimed that another housekeeper, 26-year-old Amanda Rae Vail of Ocean Isle Beach, took them.
As a result, both women were charged with larceny of medication.
