Where would YOU hide if you were shoplifting?

Well…..the ceiling of course!!

A woman in Port Charlotte has been arrested for climbing into the ceiling at Big Lots. Charlotte County Sheriff’s Office say Kristina Perkins, 37, was trying to avoid shoplifting charges and went into the store bathroom. Kristina removed tiles in the bathroom ceiling and climbed into the ceiling. Officials say she refused to come down so they called off the ceiling search around midnight. One officer stayed behind and waiting for the lady to climb down. Ms. Perkins was arrested and will face multiple charges.
