A woman from California named Elysia Johnson was arrested for what she did in a Target dressing room. Johnson was caught shoplifting as much as $200 worth of goods from the Target location in Lathrop, California. However, the young woman walked into the dressing room with a cart full of items including a six-pack of Stella Artois beer when Johnson camped out inside the dressing room for an hour while she drank down every single one of the beers in the six-pack.

Johnson decided to go to Target to get drunk instead of going to a bar. She grabbed the items she wanted and then went into a dressing room to chug the Stella Artois beers to give herself some liquid courage. After pounding back the brewskies, she then tried to flee the Target store with the remainder of her stolen items. However, she was very drunk and was easily caught by Target security officers.

This story just goes to show that no matter how much you might want to save money by drinking at home instead of going out to a bar, it’s just not worth it. Not only will you end up getting drunk, but you could also get arrested for shoplifting. So next time, Elysia Johnson, just go to a bar like a normal person. Cheers!

Johnson was arrested on suspicion of shoplifting and was booked at the San Joaquin County Jail. She was additionally booked on three other warrants that had previously been issued for her arrest.

Johnson is currently being held on $20,000 bail and is scheduled to appear in court later this month. If convicted, she faces up to three years in prison. So, Elysia Johnson, next time you’re feeling thirsty, just go to a bar like a normal person. Cheers!

Clearly, this woman does not play by the rules. When she goes into a Target location, she sees it as an adult playground complete with all-you-can-drink beer and free items to grab and go with. However, Target did not see things in the same vein as this woman and wanted the police to take her down to the jail to teach her an important lesson – nothing is gotten for free in this world of American corporate greed.

However, some reporters pointed out that Johnson could have caused a lot more damage if she had wanted to. Target stores in California sell wine by the box as well as hard liquors, which means that Johnson decided to have some restraint when picking out the six-pack of beer as her source of liquid courage. If she had wanted to, she could have gone for a handle of Jack Daniels or Seagram’s Gin if she was feeling extra bold. But she didn’t. She kept herself under control for at least part of her attempted shoplifting incident and managed to walk away with only a charge of suspicion of shoplifting, which is not the worst thing she could have had gone onto her permanent record.
