Woman says she stole truck to ‘escape from Zombies’


Oklahoma police say that they arrested a woman who tried to steal a commercial truck from a Walmart because she was trying to escape from the undead.

The incident began around 10 a.m. on Tuesday, April 9, in Sapulpa, Oklahoma, according to a police report from the Sapulpa Police Department.

Police say that Sparkletts Water delivery truck driver Davonte Harris had parked at a Walmart location and was unloading a shipment with the keys left in the ignition when a white female later identified as 27 year old Tamanda Billings entered his truck and locked the doors.

Because the truck’s window was halfway down, Harris was able to speak to Billings. When he told her to get out of his truck she reportedly told him, “No, there are zombies after me.” When Harris tried to reach through the partially opened window to open the truck door, he says that Billings rolled the window all the way up.

Police said that when they arrived on the scene, Billings was attempting to put the truck into gear to drive away. The arresting officer says that as he approached the truck, he could hear the engine revving as Billings stepped on the gas.

The officer was able to break out the truck’s window with a flashlight and placed Billings under arrest.

Police said that the truck’s parking brake was engaged when Billings was attempting to escape.

Billings was booked on charges of attempted car theft, concealing stolen property, and trespassing.

Billings was also arrested in 2014 for attempting to light her ex-boyfriend’s house on fire.
