MARION COUNTY, Fla. (WKRN) — A Florida woman is suspected of utilizing a unusual method to help steal items from a dollar store.

According to the Marion County Sheriff’s Office, the suspected shoplifter clogged multiple toilets at a Family Dollar store to distract employees as she fled with more than $400 worth of merchandise. 

The woman loaded up laundry bins with $400 of items before she went into the bathrooms and clogged the toilets, according to the Sheriff.  

She then reportedly took the stolen items to a nearby CVS, put them by the trash and went to talk to someone in a dark-colored SUV. 

The Sheriff’s Office said the SUV proceeded to drive around to the dumpsters, but when the woman spotted a Family Dollar employee by the stolen items she fled. 

No additional information was immediately released.
