An unwelcome shopper was arrested at Walmart at Buffalo Ridge Plaza in The Villages.

Lauren Ashley Switzer, 32, of Oxford showed up at the store at about 8 p.m. Thursday, according to an arrest report from the Sumter County Sheriff’s Office. A loss prevention officer spotted Switzer attempting to conceal clothing in a backpack. The loss prevention officer remembered that Switzer had been banned from the store a few months earlier, the arrest report said.

Switzer, who was arrested in 2020 after a brawl with her live-in boyfriend over a television, was arrested on a charge of trespassing. She was booked at the Sumter County Detention Center on $1,000 bond.
