Police arrest woman accused in pantless theft from Publix
Police arrest woman accused in pantless theft from Publix.
A woman accused of walking into a Publix with no pants on and walking out with two stolen boxes of wine has been caught, police said.
Desiree Taylor, 35, was arrested Monday morning at her apartment by Ocala police.
Taylor entered the store on College Road and grabbed the two boxes of wine, worth about $42, and left.
Authorities said the store manager tried to stop Taylor from stealing the wine, but she started swinging her arms wildly and fled.
Taylor was arrested on March 2 on charges including battery on a firefighter or emergency medical technician and resisting an officer.
Authorities said those charges stemmed from an incident in which Taylor was acting strangely and screaming profanities at an apartment complex pool and resisting officers and firefighters when they came to check on her well-being.
