So Elizabeth A. Hoen, you’ve just successfully shoplifted three steaks from a grocery store. What are you going to do now?
Well, I think I’ll stand on this here street corner without my pants on, and when this inevitably draws the attention of the authorities I’ll put them back on and then me and my friend here will try to run away.
According to the Wausau Daily Herald, 18-year-old Elizabeth A. Hoen was arrested at around 2:00 p.m. after neighborhood residents reported a woman standing naked from the waist down on the street in front of the former Rose Garden Banquet Center.
Wausau Police Department spokesperson Lt. Michael Juedes said that when police arrived, Hoen had put her pants back on and was in the company of an unidentified man. Both tried to run when they saw the officers. Hoen was caught by the police, but her companion was not.
In her purse, officers found three beefsteaks from nearby Kohlman and Lee’s Grocery. Juedes said that the store’s owner confirmed that the merchandise had been stolen and that security camera footage placed Hoen in the store.
She’s been charged with shoplifting and resisting arrest, and a bond hearing has been scheduled for April 11th.
