WACO (December 13, 2012)--Adriana Nicole Fossett, 25, was in the McLennan County Jail Thursday charged with robbery and resisting arrest in a weekend incident in which a shoplifting suspect struggled with an off-duty police officer who was working security at a Waco department store.

She was ordered held in lieu of bonds totaling $16,000.

She was arrested Sunday after officers responding to a report of a disturbance in the parking lot of Waco’s Richland Mall found the off-duty officer struggling with a woman who had taken $633 worth of merchandise from the Dillard’s store.

The officer was injured in the struggle, but did not seek medical treatment at the scene, police said Thursday.

Fossett was taken into custody.

She was first taken to Providence Health Center for what police called an unrelated medical event and then was then booked into jail.
