Miss Congeniality cited in Chehalis shoplifting

CENTRALIA — Days before she was named Miss Congeniality at the Miss Lewis County Scholarship Pageant, Chloe Curry was accused of attempting to shoplift cosmetics from the Chehalis Walmart.

Police said the 18-year-old from Adna and another 18-year-old attempted to leave the store March 6 with lip balm, nail polish, fake eyelashes, fake nails and other beauty products worth more than $100 in their purses. Both were cited.

The Chronicle reports pageant judges were unaware of the incident before Saturday’s competition because she uses a name different than her legal name.

Curry won a $600 Miss Congeniality scholarship, which cannot be taken away under pageant rules. She had a platform of building a positive self-image. Her talent was rhythmic dance.
