Rockingham woman accused of stealing from Walmart, ’emitting excrement’ on officers

ROCKINGHAM — A woman allegedly stole from a retail store, ran from the cops and soiled them during her arrest.

According to arrest warrants, 47-year-old Jill Bridges Reale, of Rockingham, stole unspecified clothing and wine from Walmart — valued at $58.41 — on May 5.

Reale allegedly refused to stop for officers of the Rockingham Police Department while driving 40 mph in a 35 mph zone.

Once she was stopped, warrants allege Reale refused to get out of her vehicle and walk to a patrol car and she is accused of “emitting excrement” on the two officers while they were trying to place her in the car.

Reale was arrested and charged with: misdemeanor larceny; fleeing to elude arrest with a motor vehicle; failing to heed a light or siren; resisting a public officer; assault on a government official or employee; and possession of stolen goods or property.

She was also charged with failing to appear on a misdemeanor in Moore County.

Reale is being held in the Richmond County Jail on a combined $28,000 secured bond and is scheduled to appear in court June 27.


Online court records show she also has driving infractions of driving while license revoked and having a fictitious or altered registration card or tag.

She also has a pending court appearance in Moore County for traffic infractions, including driving while impaired.

Reale appears to have no prior convictions, according to online records with the N.C. Department of Adult Correction.

All defendants facing criminal charges are presumed innocent until proven guilty in a court of law.
