East Peoria - Metamora couple(s) caught having sex in a Super Walmart Parking lot late Friday night.
Officer Gerald Duboit was performing a routine patrol through the parking lot friday night when he noticed a 2002 Ford Expedition parked in a handicapped designated space. Officer Debonshire noted that there was no indication that the vehicle had permission to be parked in such a space.
Officer Duboit states that he proceeded to draft the ticket. However when he attempted to place the ticket under the windshield wiper blade he noticed something unexpected. "I looked through the windshield and I saw a big white moon, and this was no reflection from the sky!"" said the 23 year veteran of the police force.
The officer's report then indicates that he knocked on the window and the two occupents inside became "extremely agitated." "The occupants were jumping around and exchanging expletives and apparently scrambling to find clothing."
Officer Duboit stated, "As a police officer sworn to uphold the law, I have upon occasion found various members of our society engaged in sexual acts. This was such a case, and I've been trained to allow a maximum degree of modesty if possible."
Officer Duboit cited Trey Shodheimer, 27, and Tammey Shodheimer, 27, both of Metamora were cited for public indecency and lude behavior. He also cited Tammey for parking in a handicapped designated area.
Officer Duboit was not prepared for what happened next. In a separate report filed the same evening, Officer Duboit states that he returned to his squad car and proceeded to drive down one row and up the next.
He states that he then saw a late model red Monte Carlo also parked in a handicapped designated area without justification.
"I knew something was suspicious immediately," stated the officer. "A woman was looking out the rear window right at me with a very surprised look on her face. Plus the vehicle was in motion even though it was not moving. If you know what I mean," chuckled the blushing officer.
Upon investigation, it was determined that the woman in the Monte Carlo was not alone. Officer Duboit approached the vehicle only to see a naked couple scrambling for their clothes for the second time that evening in the same parking lot.
Officer Duboit's evening of surprises was just getting started. When he questioned this couple he discovered that the occupants, Stan Shodheimer, 52, and Clarissa Shodheimer, 49, were also from Metamora and the parents of Trey Shodheimer from the earlier incident.
Officer Duboit next called in for backup. The officer claims that he called in for backup due to an approaching shift conflict.
Officer Rachel Reid, a rookie patroll woman, stated, "Gerry has been out to get me all week, and I think he just wanted to embarass me with this situation. It is possible that he just couldn't retain his composure any longer."
Stan and Clarissa Shodheimer were also cited and released late Friday evening.
Walmart manager Ken Tricecks would not return our phone calls.
Frank Thompson, 79, a greeter at Walmart stated, "This sort of thing happens almost every week. I've been working for Walmart for 6 years now and I've seen many couples caught in the act." When questioned, Frank responded, "This is the first case of a family incident that I've ever heard of."

Hi all, I am putting together my yearly letter to DR. Laura, and I thought I would gather your feed back so that I don't miss anything important. Feel free to include any personal questions you may have. I pay $694.32 per year for explicit feed back from Dr. Laura and I want to make sure that I am getting my money's worth, even if that includes helping my friends and family with that important question in their life. I realize most of you have more serious issues than do I. However, this is primarily do to the probability that I am still in denial (not The Nile) and you have all overcome your innermost lunatic.
Hope to hear from you soon, and have a good summer if I don't talk to you until September.
Please note. If you are reading an email with a white background, don't bother to open the attached document. its just giberish from the great gates in html.
Here is my tentative letter:
Dear Dr. Laura:
Thank you for doing so much to educate people regarding God's Law. I have learned a great deal from your show, and I try to share that knowledge with as many people as I can. When someone tries to defend the homosexual lifestyle, for example, I simply remind them that Leviticus 18:22 clearly states it to be an abomination.
I do need some advice from you, however, regarding some other specific Biblical laws and how to follow them.
a) When I burn a bull on the altar as a sacrifice, I know it creates a pleasing odor for the Lord (Lev. 1:9). The problem is my neighbors. They claim the odor is not pleasing to them. Should I smite them?
b) I would like to sell my daughter into slavery, as sanctioned in Exodus 21:7. In this day and age, what do you think would be a fair price for her?
c) I know that I am allowed no contact with a woman while she is in her period of menstrual uncleanness (Lev.15:19-24). The problem is, how do I tell? I have tried asking, but most women take offense.
d) Lev. 25:44 states that I may indeed possess slaves, both male and female, provided they are purchased from neighboring nations. A friend of mine claims that this applies to Mexicans, but not Canadians. Can you clarify? Why can't I own Canadians?
e) I have a neighbor who insists on working on the Sabbath. Exodus 35:2 clearly states he should be put to death. Am I morally obligated to kill him myself?
f) A friend of mine feels that even though eating shellfish is an abomination (Lev. 11:10), it is a lesser abomination than homosexuality. I don't agree. Can you settle this?
g) Lev. 21:20 states that I may not approach the altar of God if I have a defect in my sight. I have to admit that I wear reading glasses. Does my vision have to be 20/20, or is there some wiggle room here?
h) Most of my male friends get their hair trimmed, including the hair around their temples, even though this is expressly forbidden by Lev.19:27. How should they die?
i) I know from Lev. 11:6-8 that touching the skin of a dead pig makes me unclean, but may I still play football if I wear gloves?
j) My uncle has a farm. He violates Lev. 19:19 by planting two different crops in the same field, as does his wife by wearing garments made of two different kinds of thread (cotton/polyester blend). He also tends to curse and blaspheme a lot. Is it really necessary that we go to all the trouble of getting the whole town together to stone them? (Lev.24:10-16) Couldn't we just burn them to death at a private family affair like we do with people who sleep with their in-laws? (Lev. 20:14)
I know you have studied these things extensively, so I am confident you can help. Thank you again for reminding us that God's word is eternal and unchanging.
God be with You,
