We can all breath a sigh of relief, because the woman who dumped chili all over underwear that she may or may not have been trying to steal from Victoria's Secret has been arrested. Back in April, 19-year-old Lauren Jackson of Yonkers was asked to leave a Victoria's Secret outlet in White Plains, New York, after she was accused of an earlier shoplifting incident. Her reaction to this was to dump a container of chili all over a display of "frillies," ruining 65 pairs of underwear worth $747.50 in total.
Well, common sense told her to return to the very same Victoria's Secret last week, where a sales associate recognized her and called the police. The charge for such a heinous crime is third-degree criminal mischief, which just so happens to be a felony.
