ORLANDO, Fla., Jan. 24 (UPI) -- A Connecticut woman arrested on a 1991 warrant after getting off a cruise ship in Florida was released after paying her decades-old fine.

Robin Hall, 41, paid her $85 fine Tuesday for a 1991 theft conviction in Orange County, Fla., after she was arrested Jan. 17 upon debarking a cruise ship in Port Canaveral, Fla., Florida Today reported Thursday.

Police said they discovered Hall had a warrant for her arrest when they checked the passenger list of the Disney Dream for known terrorists, WESH-TV, Orlando, Fla., reported Thursday.

Hall was taken to the Brevard County jail and later transferred to the Orange County jail, where she was able to pay her fine and secure her release.

Hall said the unpaid fine stemmed from a theft conviction when she was 18-years-old.

"Back in 1991, I shoplifted cigarettes from Walmart," Hall said.
