A Norwalk woman allegedly caught huffing cans of spray duster at Walmart was arrested Wednesday and charged with abusing harmful intoxicants.

The incident reportedly happened on Friday, when an employee walked into the bathroom and saw one can of duster fall to the floor from a stall. She could hear another one being discharged, Norwalk Police Capt. Dave Smith said.

He said the employee had to force the door open and found the woman fully clothed, but with the can up to her mouth. The employee called police.

Smith said the woman, Miranda Fligor, 28, of 76 S. Linwood Ave., was alert enough to communicate, but seemed depressed. She was taken by North Central EMS to Fisher-Titus Medical Center for treatment.

After Fligor was charged, she was arrested on a warrant in connection with the abusing harmful intoxicants charge. It's a first-degree misdemeanor, carrying maximum penalties of six months in jail and a $1,000 fine.
