LDN Police Reports

Lufkin police arrested Joshua Renfroe, 29, of Hemphill, on a charge of theft Thursday afternoon.

LPD’s incident report on the arrest states he is accused of attempting to smuggle more than $400 worth of merchandise out Walmart in a plastic tote. Renfro told officers the “voodoo” made him do it. He also said the “voodoo” made him not brush his teeth that morning.
