Texas Walmart Places ‘Armed’ Guard in Front of Ice Cream Freezer

Texas Walmart Places ‘Armed’ Guard in Front of Ice Cream Freezer

Police in Lufkin, Texas-where the incident apparently took place-immediately jumped into action.

Another statement on the Lufkin Police Department's Facebook page - shared alongside a security image thought to be of the woman and the person who filmed the video - said that Blue Bell had "retrieved what they believed to be the tainted container of ice cream".

They say they've now identified the true culprit and the case will be dealt with by the juvenile justice system as the "Blue Bell licker" is under the age of 17.

The video of the "Lufkin Licker", as she has been dubbed, went viral this week.

Police in Lufkin are also looking to talk to the man who recorded the ice cream-licking incident. She lives in the area with a boyfriend, police believe.

The ice cream maker said it inspected the freezer case that contained the licked ice cream, found the problematic tub and removed all Tin Roof half gallons from the Lufkin Walmart.

The video, which was posted June 29 and has garnered more than 12 million views, shows a girl opening a half-gallon container of Blue Bell's "Tin Roof" flavor and licking it.

But just a win won't do for Pakistan since they are behind the Kiwis on run rate. After that, they lost the game to Australia which they should have won.

However, Lufkin police said this was actually a catfish. Like really severe. Like 20-years-in-prison (and a $10,000 fine) severe, NBC News reports.

Police will charge the woman with a second degree felony once her identity has been verified.

"Food tampering is not a joke, and we will not tolerate tampering with our products", the statement concludes. "Let's see if we can start an epidemic (literally)".

"Food safety is a top priority, and we work hard to provide a safe product and maintain the highest level of confidence from our consumers", Van Dorf says.

"During production, our half gallons are flipped upside down and sent to a hardening room where the ice cream freezes to create a natural seal", the statement continued.

We're not sure how Texas handles underage ice cream licking, but the crime could carry severe legal repercussions for adults. The lids are frozen tightly on the carton, making any attempt to open the product pretty noticeable, Jenny Van Dorf, a spokesperson for Blue Bell, told NPR.

The case will be turned over to the Texas Juvenile Justice Department.
