She told officers that she felt that they were “menacing” so she avoided them, got into her car, and started slowly backing out of the parking space, hoping they would move.
As she continued to back out, she told police that she looked over at Albert who then pulled a handgun out of her waistband and displayed it to her–but the gun was not pointed at her.
The victim told officers she asked Albert if she was serious and Albert responded, “Yeah, bitch.”
LPD contacted Albert and she told them she had a permit to carry concealed, but initially told officers that she didn’t have the firearm on her. Once police did a search of her vehicle, they reported finding a .40 caliber handgun along with 89 rounds of .380 caliber ammunition, 2 glass pipes with burned marijuana, and 7.1 grams of marijuana
Officers also reported finding a loaded .380 handgun belonging to Albert inside the trashcan of the women’s restroom at Walmart.
Officers cited and lodged Albert for Terroristic Threats (F), Use of a Firearm to Commit a Felony (F), Tampering with Physical Evidence (F), Child Abuse (M), Possession of Marijuana (I), and Possession of Drug Paraphernalia (I).
