A Cotton Valley woman recently learned social media is not her friend.
Annie Belle Stevens, 23, of the 400 block of Sikes Ferry Road, was arrested by CV Police on a theft charge at a local convenience store.
According to reports, Stevens went to the Cotton Valley store, picked up a cup and filled it with ice and a drink. She allegedly picked up a second empty cup, proceeded to the cooler and took an 8-ounce can of Red Bull which she placed inside the empty cup, placing the lid on top.
Stevens then reportedly put ice in the cup with the energy drink inside. She allegedly paid for her drink and a cup of ice but not the Red Bull.
At her car in her parking lot, Stevens reportedly posted a “how-to video” on Snapchat about how to get away with only paying 25 cents for an energy drink.
