A Fashion Faux Pas Worthy of Jail Time

April 10, 8:50 p.m.

A woman was caught after stealing a large number of items from Walmart when law enforcement identified her by her ostentatiously bedazzled jeans, a Pima County Sheriff's Department report stated.

A security officer at a north-side Walmart told sheriff's deputies on the scene that a woman had come into the store with plastic bags and walked around the store placing items into them (not very subtly, as security-camera footage showed). She also donned a pink hat directly from a rack and put on shoes that were for sale, leaving her old shoes behind. Then, the security man said (and camera footage confirmed), she went into a bathroom with all the bags, only to leave the store straight from the bathroom without paying for anything. She was apparently headed toward a mall adjacent to the Walmart.

The woman was fairly average looking, according to video footage: not tall, perhaps in her 30s, with blonde hair. She had no identifying characteristics like tattoos ... but she was wearing jeans with rhinestones bedazzled all over the back pockets.

Three deputies scoured the nearby mall for the female, looking in particular for someone wearing a pink hat—but they couldn't find her for quite some time. Finally, one deputy glimpsed the glint of rhinestones coming from the back of a woman's pants as she was jogging toward the Food Court. It was her.

She was indeed carrying bags from Walmart (though she'd wisely taken off the hat).

The woman was booked for shoplifting, as well as possession of drug paraphernalia, and taken to jail.
