Grocery store cameras caught the woman taking a 24-can case of beer from a cooler, stashing the 20-pound case between her thighs by pulling up her housedress, pulling her dress back down, and waddling out of the store. But it took a while to identify and find her.
Lisa Newsome, 42, of Baker, didn't deny anything when she was arrested Monday, said Capt. David McDavid of the Zachary Police Department.
"She wanted to demonstrate it ..." he said. "I told her, no thanks, I wasn't into that."
She was booked into the East Baton Rouge Parish Prison on a theft charge, he said.
"We weighed a case," he said. "It was 20 pounds."
The theft was Aug. 22. McDavid said police learned the woman's identity last week and located her Monday afternoon.
Casey Rayborn Hicks, spokeswoman for the East Baton Rouge Parish Prison, said she did not know whether Newsome had an attorney. Newsome remained in jail Tuesday in lieu of $1,000 bail.
McDavid said Newsome has been arrested 40 times and has several convictions. Her arrests include felony theft, possession of cocaine, and writing worthless checks. According to Newsome's wrap sheet, she's even operated under several different aliases."Dude, you gonna drink that?"
