JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) -

Two women now face misdemeanor shoplifting charges after police say they tried to walk out of Walmart without paying for more than $1,000 in clothes and groceries.

Police arrested the two students, both from India and attending Arkansas State University, Monday night and charged them with shoplifting $5,000 or less but greater than $1,000.

According to the initial incident report, the two women attempted to steal 149 items totaling $1,018.43 from Walmart, 1815 E. Highland.

Both women are international students and only had their student IDs at the time of their arrest, the report stated. The University Police Department provided further information on their identities.

Police took both women to the Craighead County Detention Center.

Both women have been criminally banned for life from Walmart.

After detectives reviewed the case, they dropped the charges to misdemeanors and cited the women for theft of property.
