no,she was jailled when she tried to run out of the store when her ebt card was declined. that’s shoplifting.
Technically, the headline is correct. It doesn’t say that she was jailed FOR trying to buy the iPads, just that she was jailed AFTER doing so. So, misleading, but not inaccurate.
Another question is that she tried to buy two iPads with her EBT card. If you get a third gen iPad on special that is $439 a piece for the lowest memory and wifi only. That makes one wonder exactly how much she has on her EBT card.
