Woman face charges after stealing candy, kicking officer

Authorities say a Salisbury woman was charged with larceny and assault after she took candy from Walmart and kicked the Salisbury Police officer who tried to arrest her.
Stacey Alexis King, 20, of the 800 block of South Main Street, is charged with larceny; assault on a government official; resist, delay, obstruct an officer; carrying a concealed weapon; and simple possession of marijuana, all misdemeanors. She was released after posting a $2,500 bond.
A report said King was seen at the store Saturday around 9 p.m. using a box cutter to open a package of candy that she then slid into her coat pocket. She became confrontational with a store employee who approached as she was leaving the store. She left the store and was shortly after stopped by a police officer near Old Concord Road and Martin Luther King Jr. Avenue.
King kicked the officer who tried to arrest her, a report said. The officer was able to handcuff her.
The officer found a box cutter inside King’s purse and candy, valued at $18.94, from the store inside a back pack. An officer also found one gram of marijuana on King.
