VALPARAISO | Police were forced to throw away a package of cookies after they reportedly found them stuffed into a Valparaiso woman's underwear.

Faith Green, 39, of Valparaiso, faces theft, public intoxication, resisting law enforcement and criminal mischief charges. Her son, Anthony Green, 23, of Joliet, faces resisting law enforcement and drunken driving charges.

Valparaiso police reportedly found the Greens, both allegedly intoxicated, about 3:15 a.m. Wednesday inside Pilot Travel Center, 4105 Morthland Drive.

An employee told officers Faith Green reportedly caused $200 in damage to the gas station's restroom, "severely damaging" the toilet.

As an officer was removing the woman from the store, she reportedly began unloading snack cakes and candy bars from her bra.

Officers said Anthony Green then began cursing at them before leaving the store and heading back to his SUV. Police said when he was told to stop, he took a fighting stance with officers. He backed down, police said, after they threatened to use a Taser to subdue him.

Police said both were taken to Porter County Jail, where officers reportedly found another pack of cookies in Faith Green's underwear.
