MARGATE, Fla. – A Coconut Creek woman on probation for grand theft was arrested last month after she was caught stealing pants from a Walmart in Margate, police said.

Margate police said Rachel Lepinski, 35, tried to conceal three pairs of pants in a green duffel bag July 25 in Walmart's infant department.

According to the police affidavit, Lepinski purchased a beverage and then left the store without paying for the pants in the duffel bag. She was detained until police arrived.

Police said they found two pairs of men's Wrangler jeans and one pair of George dress pants, worth about $70.

It was later discovered that Lepinski was on felony probation for grand theft.

Lepinski faces probation violation charges in addition to the theft charge.
