Police: Customer uses cart to smash two sets of doors at K-Mart

MOUNT PLEASANT, SC (WCSC) -

Police say a 53-year-old Huger woman used a grocery shopping cart to smash into two sets of doors at a K-Mart in Mount Pleasant.

The Mount Pleasant Police Department responded to the K-Mart on 1551 Johnnie Dodds Boulevard on Aug. 8 in reference to a woman breaking the glass door of the business. 

An employee said that when the woman came to the checkout line, she was being very rude and uncooperative with the cashier who the woman expected to unload her cart. Police say the woman then handed the cashier a can of dog food and told her that she had twenty cans.

According to employees, after the cashier rang up twenty cans of dog food using one can's barcode, the woman began to get angry.

Investigators say when the checkout was completed, the woman rammed her cart into the first set of doors "with a large amount of force causing the metal door frame to dent." The woman then rammed her cart into the second set of doors which caused the glass to shatter and scatter "twelve feet in front of the door."

During the interview with the witnesses, an officer said he could hear a voice giving commands to stop. When he turned around, he saw the woman walking away very quickly with another officer commanding her to stop.

Officers say the woman failed to comply with the commands to stop until another officer arrived.

The cashier told police that after the woman broke the glass out of the door, she helped the woman transfer her groceries from the cart that she was using to another cart. 

K-Mart officials say they wanted the woman placed on trespass notice and declined prosecution. Police estimated the damage at $1,000.
