A South Carolina woman was arrested Tuesday after returning stolen items from Wal-Mart in an attempt to receive store credit on a gift card.

Approximately 12:35 p.m., deputies responded to the Wal-Mart on Wrightsboro Road, where Danniell Lashall Kelly, 26, admitted to stealing two bottles of perfume, according to an incident report from the Richmond County Sheriff’s Office.

Kelly, of Columbia, S.C., was issued a $26.22 gift-card refund by customer service before being apprehended as she attempted to leave the store.

Once inside the store’s security office, deputies found two pairs of pants in a shopping bag that she also admitted to stealing. Two bags of fried chicken were found in her handbag, but Kelly stated she purchased those items, although she could not produce a receipt, the report said.

"Yeah, I stole those pants, too. BUT I BOUGHT THAT FRIED CHICKEN!" The jokes kind of write themselves with this one...

Did she cross state line

Did she cross state line just to steal from Augusta? Wow...guess they all know her in Carolina. Guess she needed the clothes and the chicken...was she naked and hungry? Guess she didn't care if she smelled nice. Nothing stinks on a thief more than stolen perfume.

chicken in a handbag?

Perfume, pants, and food. Two bags of fried chicken were found IN her handbag? How large was the 'handbag'? That is not a handbag. That is a backpack.

My favorite scent is...

..."Eau de Countess Val-mar". My second favorite is "Club du Samuelle No. 5".
Both smell like fried chicken so I use them to disguise the smell of the contents of my handbag.

She got a $26 gift card for a round-trip that cost $20 in gas.

Yeppers, that's a bright one right there.

As for the fried chicken, all the stealing made her hungry. It's hard work to steal, you know.
