BOCA RATON, FL ( — In what has to be one of the saddest stories we’ll report this holiday week, a 73 year old woman was arrested after she allegedly stole a $38 “fruit cake” from Saks 5th Avenue at the Boca Town Center Mall.
Linda Novick, according to police, “lives at large,” (this really is sad), had no identification at the time of her arrest, and was booked into the Palm Beach County Jail. In what we can only assume — or hope — was a very kind judge (we’re thinking Harry Stone from NightCourt), Novick was released with the notation “time served” on her record.
We do not know where she is now, or where she will be spending the holidays.
