Shoplifters sometimes crack us up. They're all over the spectrum when it comes to the things they steal. Kleptomania can be as unpredictable as any other mental illness. We've heard of some pretty strange things being stolen over the years. But when someone's stealing things they could get for free from the right organization, it really drives home the fact that for a klepto, it's about the stealing, not what's stolen.
Take this woman in Marietta, Ga., for example. Her name's Alexandrea Brooks, and if you judge based on what she's accused of stealing, you'd think she's a little confused.
Brooks popped into a Walgreens in Marietta and wandered the pharmacy for a bit before dashing out the door with $562.68 worth of merchandise. The items she stole?
-- 5 boxes of Trojan Magnum gold collection condoms
-- 1 box of Trojan Ultra Ribbed Condoms
-- 5 boxes of Trojan Magnum Ecstasy Condoms
-- 6 boxes of Trojan Magnum fire/ice Condoms
-- 6 boxes of Trojan Magnum Thin Condoms
-- 2 boxes of Trojan Magnum Lube
-- 1 box of Trojan Ultra Thin/ Sens Condoms
-- Walgreens Organic Cotton Balls
-- Huggies Natural Care wipes
-- 1 First Response Digital Ovulation Test Kit
If you're keeping count, that's 26 boxes of condoms and ... an ovulation test? Because what goes better with 26 boxes of condoms than an ovulation test? Is she trying to jack a guy's sperm so she can get pregnant? (Pun optional.)
Seems this isn't the first time Brooks has been arrested for shoplifting, though last time she was more concerned with aging than having a baby. She's alleged to have made off with a bunch of Oil of Olay products in that shoplifting spree.
