“saying that she had put items in her bag on the fourth floor of Neiman Marcus and had forgotten that she had them after chatting with a second-floor sales clerk, eating at a cafe and then walking outside the store as she texted.”

She miscalculated the skill of the store security.
And she got way with no jail time.
And the winner of this years Pinocchio Award goes to.....
