The court stated that, earlier this year, the accused had entered Jax Enterprises Ltd from where she stole a quantity of items valued at $190.65.

A security guard noticed that she pushed the items in her bag and continued to walk about the store as if nothing happened. She then proceeded outside where she was immediately apprehended.

In her testimony to the court, the defendant claimed a woman gave her the bag to hold in the store.
