Kimberly Ann Coppinger, 36, of Gingko Lane, was charged Saturday with theft by shoplifting in the crime.
“Coppinger states that she was invited to a party and did not have anything to wear and knows it was the wrong thing to do,” a sheriff’s report says.
A loss prevention officer told deputies that Coppinger was seen going to the jewelry department and selecting a necklace and a watch, placing them in her purse and walking out without paying.
The loss prevention officer escorted the woman to a security office, where she admitted to taking the items and also presented three other clothing items that she had taken: a dress, a shirt and a vest. She had hidden them in her purse, too, a report says.
