A Bottomless Caper: Pantless Woman Arrested in Boxed Wine Theft
By Jaime Lutz
She’s not wearing slacks, and the police aren’t cutting her any … slack.
Police have identified a Florida woman who allegedly stole two boxes of wine from a convenience store while wearing no pants — and after a short search, the britches-less bandit is now in custody.
Ocala City police said tips helped them identify and apprehend Desiree J. Taylor, 35, who was previously arrested last month on charges of battery of an officer.
Taylor was caught on security camera on April 10 at a Publix store wearing slippers and a shirt that came down to the top of her thighs, police said. Surveillance footage shows her walking out with a box of wine, police said.
She was arrested this morning on charges of disorderly conduct, resisting a merchant and petty theft, police said.
