ISLAMORADA -

A Homestead woman was arrested Wednesday, accused of stealing holiday cheer.

UPS worker Shuwana Horne-Greene was arrested for stealing parcels from an Islamorada UPS warehouse, according to the Monroe County Sheriff's Office.

Another employee told police they witnessed Horne-Greene opening a tin of cookies and eating them while also pocketing an iPad.

What's more, Horne-Greene went into the UPS computer system and altered the cookie delivery status to "receiver moved, not delivered/returned to shipper."

Horne-Greene admitted to eating the cookies and to selling the iPad to someone at the Collier County Casino for $250.

She was taken to the Monroe County jail in Key West where she is being held on $16,000 bond for grand theft.
