Coach Arrested For Shoplifting At Kohl’s Department Store
SPARTANBURG, S.C. (AP) — The head basketball coach at Converse has been arrested and accused of shoplifting.
Deputies say employees at a Kohl’s department store in Spartanburg on Tuesday saw 35-year-old Kaye Waldrep and a man, 38-year-old Ricky Dean Ponder, hiding merchandise and trying to leave without paying.
Deputies say the items included shoes and perfume. Authorities say the items totaled just over $500.
Waldrep and Ponder are both charged with shoplifting under $2,000. It wasn’t immediately known if they had attorneys.
A Converse spokesman confirmed to WSPA-TV that Waldrep is the head coach for the Division II college.
Waldrep is in her second year at the school.
