Arkansas cops are stumped as to why an accused shoplifter was wearing a Holstein cow costume when she recently swiped allergy medicine from a Walmart store. Police in Pine Bluff were at the store Tuesday afternoon as Walmart workers monitored suspect Ashley Curry, who “was dressed as a black and white Holstein cow, complete with four pink udders in her lower abdomen area.” The 27-year-old woman allegedly hid a package of Flonase in her coat pocket and headed for the store exit. As she departed the retailer, Curry was met by a Pine Bluff Police Department patrolman and a Walmart loss prevention officer, who then escorted Curry and a male companion back inside. Once Curry reached the security office, a policeman named Officer Wiegand summoned a female officer to conduct a pat down for “weapons and other merchandise.” At this point, Curry stuck out her stomach and told Wiegand that he could “suck a pink cow udder.” Curry was busted for shoplifting and resisting arrest and booked into the Jefferson County jail on the misdemeanor counts. Asked why Curry was dressed in a cow costume, a police spokesperson said, “No explanation was ever given.” (https://goo.gl/KNvp8b)
