Tamanda Billings of Sapulda, Oklahoma, was arrested for the attempted theft of a Sparklett’s water truck from a Walmart parking lot. Employees at the scene said they heard her screaming “The zombies are coming! The zombies are coming!”
via The Sapulda Times:
According to Sapulpa police at the scene, the driver of the truck was in the back, unloading his shipment when he heard a door slam shut.
He went to the front of the vehicle and found the suspect, Tamanda Billings, sitting the front seat, trying to get the emergency break unlocked so that she could drive off in the truck.
Billings had locked the door and refused to come out, so Taylor had to use his flashlight break the window of the truck to extract her from the vehicle.
Police said they have had multiple run-ins with Billings in the past. Just last week, she had been arrested for possession of meth and drug paraphernalia. In February, police said she hopped into a car tried to drive off but was caught before she could get away. Another time she said Satan had kidnapped her and dropped her off at a crime scene.
She also was arrested on suspicion of arson in 2014 when she reportedly admitted to police that she tried to burn down her ex-boyfriend’s house.
So, it’s probably very easy to write Tamanda off as just another nutty meth addict – and yes, she is that – but who’s to say she WASN’T REALLY fleeing from a hoard of killer zombies? If the zombie apocalypse is really starting, I imagine someplace like Sapulda, Oklahoma would probably be ground zero. And then wouldn’t we feel silly for smugly reporting about “crazy” Tamanda Billings. JUSTICE FOR TAMANDA!
