Being illegally parked in a Wal-Mart fire lane invites law enforcement attention

WASCO – It all started with an illegally parked vehicle in the fire lane at Wal-Mart. Deputies with the Kern County Sheriff’s Office came to the store at 401 North Central Avenue to investigate on August 4th.

33-year-old Raymond Pruitt of Hanford was the driver and 36-year-old Shandra Smith of Visalia was his passenger.

It turns out that “Pruitt had two felony warrants for his arrest, and Smith had one felony warrant for her arrest.”

In addition, deputies discovered personal and business checks in the vehicle that did not belong to the couple. They also found several altered or forged checks, and ID and Social Security cards that also did not belong to the pair.

Pruitt and Smith were arrested and booked for their warrants, and also for “open charges of forgery, possession of ten or more personal documents with intent to defraud, and conspiracy to commit a crime. Pruitt was also booked for possession of drug paraphernalia, illegally parking in a fire lane, and unauthorized possession a handicap placard.”
