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.
Starbucks barista asks 6 Arizona police officers to leave because customer ‘did not feel safe’
(USA) A group of Arizona police officers were reportedly asked to move or leave a Starbucks coffee shop on the Fourth of July because a customer felt uncomfortable.
According to a post from the Tempe Officers Association, six Tempe Police Department officers were drinking coffee before their shift when a barista told them a customer “did not feel safe” by their presence.
The barista allegedly asked the officers to move out of the customer’s line of sight or to leave, the tweet states.
“This treatment of public safety workers could not be more disheartening. While the barista was polite, making such a request at all was offensive. Unfortunately, such treatment has become all too common in 2019,” the organization wrote. “We know this is not a national policy at Starbucks Corporate and we look forward to working collaboratively with them on this important dialogue.”
Starbucks has issued a formal apology to an Arizona police force after six officers were kicked out of a Tempe coffee shop on Independence Day, an eviction that triggered a social media firestorm as #DumpStarbucks trended on Twitter.
