PERE MARQUETTE TOWNSHIP – A 23-year-old homeless woman was arrested by Mason County sheriff’s deputies Sunday evening, Nov. 3, after she allegedly threatened to burn down Walmart while throwing merchandise around in the store, according to Mason County Sheriff Kim Cole.

“The woman reportedly dumped a can of motor oil down an aisle and threw her cell phone at the deputies as they approached her,” Cole said. “She then fought with deputies while they attempted to take her into custody.”

She was arrested shortly after 7 p.m. on charges of disorderly conduct, retail fraud and assaulting a police officer.
