Leesburg police officers were dispatched last week to the store located at 737 South 14th Street regarding a theft which had occurred on Nov. 6.

The video showed the woman, who was identified as 38-year-old Amber Hall, paying for some items, but not those she had concealed in her purse, according to an arrest report.

The officers found Hall near the intersection of Carpenter Avenue and Sumter Street. When confronted by the police, she admitted to stealing some beef jerky.

Hall has three prior shoplifting convictions, therefore she was charged with a felony petit theft charge. She was booked at the Lake County Jail and released after posting $2,000 bond.
