Shoplifter Blames Crime on Irritable Bowel Syndrome

CAPE CORAL, Fla. (AP) – A woman arrested for shoplifting has blamed the crime on irritable bowel syndrome, authorities said. Helen Gallo, 61, of Clearwater, was arrested Sunday after allegedly shoplifting from a Cape Coral grocery store, The Daily Breeze of Cape Coral reported.

Gallo told the authorities she couldn’t wait in line due to irritable bowel syndrome.

She’s being charged with petit larceny and was released Sunday from jail on a $500 bond.

If she’s telling the truth about having IBS, why didn’t she just leave the items at the store?
