HORRY COUNTY, SC (WMBF) - Horry County deputies are trying to track down 47-year-old Melissa Ann Dudas for allegedly shoplifting. The incident happened at the Krogers located at 2939 South Highway 17 Business. The Horry County police report says that on September 16, 2015 she was seen putting two packages of steaks in her purse. When approached about it, the report says she dropped the purse and ran out of the store. The purse had credit cards inside, and between those and surveillance video they were able to identify her. Dudas last lived on Katie Lynn Court in Murrells Inlet.

They also hope to locate 45-year-old Billy Joe Bowles, who is wanted for third-degree criminal domestic violence. The incident allegedly happened in the 400 block of Luttie Road. This is where officials responded to a call about a domestic in progress. When authorities arrived Bowles had fled on foot. The report says Bowles threw beans and a mug at the victim, injuring her in the head. Bowles last lived on Luttie Road
