CEDAR PARK, Texas – A woman allegedly stole a bottle of $3.99 wine to get arrested and see her jailed boyfriend.
Alicia Walicke was charged with misdemeanour theft and freed on $5,000 bond Friday. Jail records did not list an attorney for the woman.
Police say Walicke stole a bottle of wine from a Texas gas station Wednesday. An arrest affidavit says police found the woman outside the business and drinking the wine. The affidavit says she told police that she wanted to see her boyfriend, who was arrested hours earlier, and told them she wanted to go to jail.
Police didn’t immediately identify the boyfriend or say whether the woman saw him.
Police didn’t immediately return messages Saturday.
