KAUFMAN, Texas – We have all heard of “self-incrimination.” Now we have a case of “selfie incrimination.” Police in Texas are hoping one robbery suspect’s selfies will lead to her arrest.
Megan Boulter, 25, is wanted by the Kaufman Police Department. The charges include aggravated robbery and child endangerment. The police agency posted 10 different selfies of Boulter — some her different hair styles and makeup choices, and others of her making goofy faces — in hopes of arresting the woman suspected of alluding them since July 2.
“Here some more pictures of Boulter with her hair in different styles and colors,” the department posted on Facebook Monday. “She is believed to be hiding out and moving between Kaufman, Van Zandt and Dallas County with the help of a male friend.”
Capt. Edward Black told the Houston Chronicle that Boulter was spotted shoplifting at a Walmart in Kaufman as she shopped with her 5-year-old daughter. While making her getaway, Boulter is accused of trying to run over a loss prevention officer twice with her red 2013 Dodge Challenger before leading police on a 90 mph-chase with her daughter in the car.
It wasn’t immediately clear how her male friend assisted her during the getaway.
Black said the cheeky photos have caught people’s eye, but she was still on the run late Tuesday.
“She’s actually pretty popular in this area,” Black told the Chronicle. “We’re one step behind her. I hope she comes in before she gets anybody or herself hurt.”
