Authorities in Texas said Friday they have identified and interviewed the girl who was filmed licking a tub of Blue Bell ice cream before putting it back in a supermarket freezer as part of a now viral video.

Police in Lufkin said the girl in the video was a juvenile under the age of 17, so she could not be identified. They did say she was from San Antonio and had ties to the Lufkin area through her adult boyfriend.
Blue Bell helped authorities determine in which store the incident occurred, having instructed its division managers to try to deduce the location.
“Within an hour of the corporate plea, a Lufkin division manager called, saying he believed it was Lufkin Walmart,” police said. “He based this on the store’s unique merchandising which matched the video.”
Police then located surveillance footage of the pair inside the store June 28 around 11 p.m.
All the half gallons of Blue Bell Tin Roof were removed from the store. Blue Bell also said it did not believe the tub that was licked was ever sold.
