BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) — Just when you think you have seen it all, Boca Raton Police arrested 18-year-old Mercedes Reed-Vaughn after she allegedly placed a purse in a Bloomingdales toilet.

The “Chloe” brand bag was valued at $1795.

Bloomingdales determined the bag could no longer be sold so had to be written off. That led to a charge of felony criminal mischief against Reed-Vaghn who lists Boca as her home address.

She was transported to the Palm Beach County Jail where ultimately posted bond and was released.
