STUPID: Woman Nabbed After Attempting Third Theft From Mall

BOCA RATON, FL ( — Don't ever, ever return to the scene of the crime. Just don't do it. It doesn't take watching seasons worth of Law and Order, NYPD Blue, NCIS or other police shows to know this. It's just common sense. Something Adriana Torres of Miami is allegedly lacking.

Torres, police say, stole a significant quantity of cologne from Abercrombie and Fitch at Boca's Town Center Mall several weeks ago. The loss prevention officer at A&F provided the security tape to Boca PD.

Then, Wednesday night, Torres attempted to do it again. But this time loss prevention saw the theft in progress and nabbed her — calling Boca PD for the cuffing.

Adriana Torres, according to a police report, admitted to driving up from Miami and using a blue and white bag “lined with tin foil” to evade loss prevention sensors. She stole nearly $2000 worth of cologne — and was paid $100 by another person to do it. The takedown caused enough of a commotion in the mall that readers asked us what was going on.

Now we know.

Torres was booked into the Palm Beach County Jai where she remains. Bond is set at $20,000.
