GRAND BLANC TWP, MI – Grand Blanc Township Police say a woman spent at least 40 hours living in Walmart after she was kicked out a family member's home.
At about 10:30 a.m. on Thursday, Jan. 8, police were dispatched to Walmart, 6170 S. Saginaw Road, after officials caught a woman sleeping in the bathroom in the rear of the supermarket.
"During the day, she'd just walk around and meander near the store," Detective Matt Harburn of the Grand Blanc Township Police Department said. "At night, apparently she'd go into the bathroom and sleep.
After employees told her to leave the store, police were called. They met the 45-year-old woman inside.
Harburn said police were concerned about what would happen if they did not take her into custody -- she was wearing only a light jacket and, as temperatures in the area were 15 degrees -- so they brought her to the police department.
Once at the department, Harburn said the woman was allowed to call family, who picked her up. She was issued a ticket for disorderly person.
Officials from Walmart had no comment on the arrest.
