Police Post Silly Selfies of Woman on the Lam in Bid to Catch Her
A series of strange selfies are being used by police to help capture a Texas woman who's on the lam with her 5-year-old daughter, authorities said.
Megan Boulter, 25, is wanted by the Kaufman Police Department in a bizarre shoplifting case where the woman twice tried to run over a Walmart store detective, Capt. Ed Black told InsideEdition.com Wednesday.
"We still haven’t caught her yet," Black said. Officers took several selfies from the woman’s Facebook page, sporting different hair colors and styles, and posted them on the department’s social media sites. In the images, Boulter makes several wacky faces and sticks out her tongue.
The mother was observed shoplifting last week with her 5-year-old daughter in tow, the chief said. When she was approached by loss prevention officer, she ran into the parking lot “dragging the baby along,” Black said.
Boulter jumped into her red Dodge Challenger, with the female security agent on her heels, he said. The woman slammed the car in reverse and “tried to back over the loss prevention officer. Twice,” Black said.
She sped out of the lot and led police on a high-speed chase down a four-lane highway, passing cars on the shoulder, he said. Because there was a child in the car, officers called off the pursuit, Black said.
Police are asking for the public’s help in finding Boulter, who has been hiding out in different locations, helped by a male friend, Black said.
“We’ve come close to getting her twice now,” he said. “Both times we just missed her.”
She faces charges of aggravated robbery and child endangerment, the chief said. “She turned a simple shoplifting into a felony.”
