A Massachusetts woman was unsuccessful in her efforts to avoid arrest by locking herself in a Domino’s refrigerator.
Sandra Savage, 47, was a suspect in a Walmart shoplifting Thursday (Jan. 7, 2016) after allegedly hiding items underneath a blanket that was covering a baby in a carriage.
Security employees confronted the woman, who returned the items, yelled that she didn’t “have time for this,” and bolted with a young boy and her baby carriage, according to Weymouth police. She ended up in a nearby Domino’s, abandoned her children and locked herself in the walk-in refrigerator in the back.
Officers tried to convince her to come out but had to force open the door.
Savage, of Weymouth, was charged with shoplifting, reckless endangerment of a child, disorderly conduct, resisting arrest and malicious damage to property.
Authorities say the two children were taken by police and later given into the custody of social service workers. The children were identified as her grandson and a friend’s son.
