DR. PHILLIPS, Fla. —

Sheriff’s deputies in Orange County, Florida, said they have charged an 83-year-old woman with shoplifting after she allegedly tried to steal bottles of wine worth almost $100 each.

The woman allegedly brought some sort of tool to help remove the security devices from the bottles, deputies said.

Deputies said a loss prevention officer at the Whole Foods in Dr. Phillips called authorities after seeing a woman in the wine aisle on Nov. 13 pick up two bottles of Chimney Rock Elevage, which is valued at $97.99 each, and place them on top of her cart.

After placing the wine on top of her cart, deputies said she was then seen removing the security devices, putting them in a plastic produce bag that she then stuffed into a vest pocket.

According to deputies, the woman moved the wine into her bag, bought a pack of chocolate crackers at the checkout, then left the store without paying for the wine.

The woman, identified as 83-year-old Bae Kyoon Kim of Orlando, was arrested on Nov. 19 without incident, deputies said.

The store said it does wish to prosecute, according to deputies.
