Shoplifter Is Run Over Twice Trying To Escape With Booty

January 17, 2009

Florida (ChattahBox) – In a bizarre story coming out of Cape Coral, a woman who shoved six designer handbags into her shirt at a T.J. Maxx department store was run over twice by her own getaway car.

The woman had been confronted by a security guard at the store, as she walked out with the handbags bulging out of her blouse. As they guard and she were speaking, a car allegedly pulled up to the curb, and the woman tried to jump in.

Instead of making it into the front seat, she fell out, and was run over by the car. Her injuries were not serious enough to get her down, however, as she jumped up and onto the hood of the moving vehicle, falling off, only to be run over once again.

A third attempt allowed her to finally get into the vehicle as it sped away, but she left a few items behind, such as a check that had fallen from her purse. Police are using that, and the license plate of the car, to find her.

Police would not release details on what charges they plan to bring against her.
