A woman who admitted “I was stupid” was arrested in the theft of merchandise at a Belk store in The Villages.
Logan Ann McBride, 35, of Mount Dora, entered the store at La Plaza Grande on Friday morning and a loss prevention officer noticed her taking merchandise into a fitting room, according to an arrest report from the Lady Lake Police Department. When she left the dressing room, the loss prevention officer noted McBride did not visibly appear to have the merchandise and it wasn’t left behind in the fitting room. She left the store and was detained by the loss prevention officer until police arrived.
When an officer asked McBride what had taken place, she admitted she had stolen the merchandise.
“I was stupid. I stole some stuff,” she told the police officer.
A check of McBride’s purse turned up a hypodermic needle loaded with methamphetamine, as well as $259 worth of merchandise.
She was already on probation for theft.
She was arrested on charges of theft and violation of probation and booked without bond at the Lake County Jail.
