LUFKIN, TX (KTRE) - A 24-year-old Zavalla woman accepted a plea deal for four months of probation Friday for an incident in which she and her mother were caught shoplifting $60 worth of merchandise, and she was found to be in possession of a controlled substance.

Nichole Fulfer appeared in Judge Bob Inselmann's court Friday. Her court appearance and plea bargain came three days after she was arrested at the Lufkin Walmart. With the deal, she pleaded guilty to a state-jail felony charge of possession of a controlled substance less than 1 gram and a Class B misdemeanor charge of theft between $50 and $500.

Fulfer's mother, Carrie Mitchell, 44, of Zavalla, was arrested at the same time. She was charged with Class B misdemeanor theft. She was released later Tuesday after she posted a $1,500 bail.

According to the police report, the alleged theft occurred at 2:24 p.m. Tuesday. The items the pair allegedly stole included a pair of Levi pants, Fingerprints fake nails, a No Boundaries shirt, Scunci barrettes, Scent Sensation Wax, and Hello Kitty cards.
