Store employees called police when the woman came to the store and bought a purse after she was recognized for stealing items on three other occasions last November and December. The value of the items stolen on Nov. 3, Dec. 2 and Dec. 23, totaled $742.75.

As police pulled up to question the woman in the parking lot, she exclaimed, "I did not steal (expletive)!"

The woman remained loudly confrontational, giving false ID information and then saying, "I'm going to return the (expletive) purse!"

When she was told that she was gong to be arrested for retail theft and disorderly conduct, the woman told police she felt ill. Police called a rescue squad but the woman refused to go to the hospital.
