Uh oh! Is this woman going to start stealing cell phones too, now that mobile couponing is becoming increasingly popular???
According to police, extreme-couponer Jamie VanSicker of Arkansas was arrested for stealing almost 200 NEWSPAPERS in an effort to find
some tons of deals! Wowsa!
Here's what Springdale Police Department's Lt. Kevin Lewis had to say about it:
"Her defense was that she didn't know it was a crime. Because they were getting no returns, the newspaper was actually putting more newspapers in those boxes to try to sell more newspapers."
VanSicker is being charged with misdemeanor theft of property.
…Wonder if she'll be able to find any coupons to help cover the costs of any fines she'll be given for her crimes.
