A Pennsylvania woman who reportedly urinated on potatoes inside a Walmart store has apparently turned herself in.
WTAE reports that Grace Brown has been identified as the potato-urinating woman, allegedly caught in the act via security footage inside a West Mifflin Walmart. The suspect turned herself in at the West Mifflin police station. She brought an attorney with her.
Police initially didn’t know when the incident took place, but West Mifflin police confirmed on Thursday afternoon that it occurred late night, July 24. A Walmart employee spotted urine on the floor, according to authorities, which prompted a loss prevention officer to review security footage, which reportedly showed the suspect urinating.
The employee immediately threw away the potatoes and sanitized the area. It’s unclear if the employee approached Grace or tried to apprehend her.
