Johnson City police were dispatched to Walmart on West Market Street around 12:30 a.m. Wednesday about the alleged shoplifting. They stopped a green Honda Accord they were told was a vehicle associated with the shoplifting as it was leaving the parking lot.

After officers discovered Woodfin’s real identity, she was arrested. When officers searched Woodfin, they found methamphetamine, according to a press release on the incident.
Woodfin was held in the Washington County Detention Center on $6,000 bond. She was scheduled for arraignment Wednesday afternoon.
