SALISBURY — Authorities say a Salisbury woman who took $150 worth of household items from a local store hid the store’s shopping cart and the items in a closet.

The Salisbury Police charged Tyanna Celeste Robinson, 35, with misdemeanor larceny. She remains in the Rowan County Detention Center under a $500 secured bond. Her first court appearance is slated for later this month.


A report said on Sunday night, Robinson walked into Family Dollar store at 410 E. Innes St. and walked out of the store with a cart. She walked across Innes Street near Advance Auto Parts and Goodyear Tire to a home in the 300 block of East Fisher Street.

When officers arrived at the home, Robinson told them she was visiting the home and if they wanted to search the home they needed to return with a warrant. One officer stayed at the home and the other went to obtain a warrant.

Robinson gave the officer permission to search the home before the officer returned with the warrant, the report said.

The officer found the cart and all its contents inside a back bedroom closet at the home. Robinson was arrested. The cart and the items were returned to the store. Robinson has previously been convicted of assault, drug possession, disorderly conduct, communicating threats and resisting arrest.
