Woman Arrested for Cooking Meth Inside a WalMart

This story offers up a perfect slice of modern America...

Tulsa police arrest a woman for mixing chemicals to make meth inside a south Tulsa Walmart on Thursday.

Elizabeth Alisha Greta Halfmoon, 45, also known to go by Alisha Halfmoon, was arrested for endeavoring to manufacture meth at the 81st and Lewis store.

Police say surveillance video shows Halfmoon had been in the store since noon.  Six hours later security noticed she was acting suspicious, so they called Tulsa police. 

Responding officers say she claimed she was "too broke to buy the chemicals." 

“She didn’t have the money to make the purchases of the chemicals that were needed so she was taking what was needed in the bottle,” says Officer David Shelby. 

Shoppers inside the store had no idea someone was cooking meth.

“When firefighters were on the scene she made statements to them that is what she was doing, she was attempting to obtain these chemicals and was in the process of trying to manufacture meth. However, she said she was not very good at it,” says Shelby.
