By The Blaze. A woman who thought it would be funny to video herself licking the ice cream in a tub at a Walmart store and replacing it on the freezer shelf isn’t laughing at the prison time she’s facing. . .
Texas police on Wednesday said that they had identified her after detectives “obtained surveillance video placing a woman matching the suspect description in the Lufkin store on June 28 around 11 p.m.”
That charge could mean up to $10,000 in fines and 20 years in prison, if she’s convicted.
“Our detectives are working to verify the identity of the female suspect before a warrant is issued for her arrest on a charge of second-degree felony tampering with a consumer product,” said a police spokesperson.
Police are also trying to identify the male who shot the video and can be heard encouraging the women to lick the ice cream.

Police Find Girl Who Licked Blue Bell Ice Cream in Viral Video
By NBC News. Police in Texas said Friday that they found the girl who was filmed licking a tub of ice cream and returning it to a grocery store shelf in a viral video last week. . .
At least four women, including the person who lied about her involvement, had similar screen names and appearances, police said. Authorities had to rule each one out before finding the actual suspect.
Before police knew the girl’s identity, they said she could face a second-degree felony charge of tampering with a consumer product, which comes with a two- to 20-year prison term and up to $10,000 in fines, according to Texas state penal code.
Lufkin police said Friday that if the girl faces charges related to the incident, they will be “at the discretion of the juvenile justice system.” (Read more from “Police Find Girl Who Licked Blue Bell Ice Cream in Viral Video” HERE)
