CORPUS CHRISTI (Kiii News) -

A 55-year old woman was arrested Wednesday and charged with theft after allegedly stealing items from the HEB Plus on Saratoga, using a motorized shopping cart to hide the stolen items.

Police responded to the shoplifting complaint just before 2:30 p.m. A witness told officers that 55-year old Sylvia Cifuentes had put the merchandise, valued at over $100, on the seat of the motorized shopping cart. She then sat on the merchandise and left the store without paying.

Cifuentes was arrested and taken to the City Detention Center.
