SPARTANBURG COUNTY, S.C. -

Spartanburg County deputies arrested a woman who they say tried to shoplift jewelry by placing items in a cup and pretending to drink from it.

Alicia Laurens Anderson was cited for shoplifting first degree by the Spartanburg County Sheriff’s Office after she was arrested Tuesday afternoon.

A loss prevention officer at Hamrick’s on Spartan Boulevard says he saw Anderson place several items in a shopping cart, but selected jewelry and placed it into a cup she appeared to be drinking from before exiting.

She paid for the items in the cart, but was stopped by the store officer after not paying for the jewelry or some items hidden under her purse.

The shoplifted items were valued at more than $66 according to the incident report.

Deputies claim Anderson, 27, admitted to taking the jewelry in a cup. She was arrested and was in the Spartanburg County Detention Center Wednesday morning on $1,000 bond.
