Shoplifter had a purse full of stolen goods and narcotics

What started out as response to a call about a suspected shoplifting turned into a narcotics arrest when the contents of the suspect's purse revealed more than just items taken from a local store.

On September 28th around 4:34pm, Picayune Police officers responded to a call from a local store in reference to a shoplifting that was observed by the store's loss prevention officer.

Upon arrival, Police officers saw the loss prevention officer of the store speaking to a female, later identified as Jill Nicole Miller, age 39, of 108 Fred Strain Road in Carriere, in front of the store. Miller was suspected of shoplifting.

When Miller saw the Police officers, she began to run and the Police officer ordered her to stop and she complied. At this time, Miler was escorted back into the store to speak with the loss prevention officer. During the conversation, the officer began to remove items from Miller’s purse that had been taken by Miller from the store with a total value of $225.90.

During the unloading of Miller's purse, the Police officer located a pill bottle containing 26 Tizanidine pills, a folded up foil paper containing a crystal like substance believed to be Crystal Methamphetamine, another pill container containing 4 Klonopin pills. Officers also found 3 Suboxone packs, and 1 plastic straw containing a powdery residue.

Miller was arrested for Possession of a Controlled Substance (felony), Possession of a Controlled Substance two counts (misdemeanor), Possession of Paraphernalia, and Shoplifting. She was transported to the Criminal Justice Center, booked, and incarcerated on the said charges.
