SOUTH EUCLID , Ohio, July 31 (UPI) -- An Ohio woman who found herself in a crappy situation allegedly responded by turning it into an even bigger mess.

A store manager followed Sandra Thomas into the parking lot of a South Euclid Walgreens after he allegedly saw her place items in a shopping bag and then leave without paying.

When the manager asked Thomas for a receipt, the 51-year-old could not produce one for the $140.47 worth of items.

The suspect started heading back to the store with the manager and police were called -- then things got a little grimy.

"Thomas told him that she had to use the bathroom badly when she suddenly pulled down her pants and defecated in the front of the store," the News-Herald reported.

She took off and when police tracked her down, Thomas told them she was having health problems, "again pulling her pants down."

After being taken to a bathroom, Thomas was placed in a cruiser. She then allegedly told police she had bed bugs.

Thomas was charged with theft and disorderly conduct.
