Walmart Madness #91! 'High' Speed Chase Over 37 Dollar Printer

A loss prevention employee at Wal-Mart on Natchez Drive contacted them after spotting 48-year-old Clint Coslett (above, right) and his 32-year-old wife, Prilla Coslett, (above, left,) stealing a $37 computer printer.

Officials say when the husband (above, right) saw the responding officer arrive, Coslett put the 2006 Chevy Silverado in gear and fled, nearly striking the officer who was approaching the vehicle on foot.

According to investigators, the couple led Slidell cops on a high-speed chase across the city, “while throwing suspected methamphetamine and marijuana out of the vehicle.”

An off-duty officer on Shorcut Highway heard the pursuit over his police radio and pulled over in case the chase came his way, deploying his spike strips.  Police say the suspects’ vehicle came to a stop after running over the tire-deflation devices, and the couple was arrested.
