ROGERSVILLE — A shoplifting suspect who allegedly swung a knife at Rogersville Walmart employees earlier this month was released on recognizance pending a Jan. 9 preliminary hearing, but only under strict guidelines that include regular appointments with a mental health caseworker.

Patricia Klynne Holden, 27, 229 Clay Street, Rogersville, was arrested at the Rogersville Walmart on Dec. 2 after store security allegedly observed her stuff $215 worth of movies and CDs into her backpack.

After being taken to the store’s loss prevention office, Holden allegedly pulled a knife and swung it at two store employees. Employees were able to detain her in the office by holding the door shut until police arrived.
