A TEXAS WOMAN WAS CAUGHT LICKING ICE CREAM AND PUTTING IT BACK NOW MIGHT BE FACING JAIL TIME.

Police in the US state of Texas are trying to find a woman caught on tape licking ice cream and then putting it back.

The incident occurred at a Walmart store in the city of Lufkin on July 28.

A video is going viral of the women licking a half-gallon of Blue Bell ‘Tin Roof’ ice-cream and proceeding to put it back on the shelve.

Detectives want to charge her with a second-degree felony for tampering with a consumer product.

The woman could face up to 20 years in prison.

She also might face up to US$10,000 (€8,879) in fines.

Lufkin director of public safety, Gerald Williamson, says: “Our biggest concern is consumer safety, in that regard, we are glad to see the tainted product off the shelves.”

The ice cream has been pulled off the shelves at the Lufkin store.

Authorities are also looking for the man caught on tape with her.
