An Elizabethtown woman wanted by police for about three weeks was arrested late Thursday afternoon after an anonymous tip to Hardin County CrimeStoppers.

Christina Marie Pendleton, 40, was found in Woodland Mobile Home Park in Elizabethtown and arrested at 4:57 p.m. by Elizabethtown police. She is charged with second-degree robbery.

According to an arrest warrant, Pendleton changed price tags Aug. 17 at Walmart in Elizabethtown, paying $4.88 for two pair of pants at a self checkout lane for items that actually cost $43.64.

When a Walmart loss prevention officer confronted Pendleton, she allegedly pushed the officer and fled the store.

EPD and CrimeStoppers posted a photograph of Pendleton on social media in hopes of locating her. The tipster will receive an undisclosed cash reward, Elizabethtown Police Department spokesman Chris Denham said.

Second-degree robbery is a Class C felony punishable by five to 10 years in prison, if convicted.

She is being held in lieu of a $2,500 cash bond in the Hardin County Detention Center. A condition of her bond is that she stay out of Walmart, according to the warrant.

Pendleton is scheduled to appear Sept. 13 in Hardin District Court.
