CORVALLIS, Ore. (KOIN 6) — A woman filled her cart with more than $1500 of items and walked out of a Fred Meyer store and then was arrested, Corvallis police said.

Jacqueline Day Underwood allegedly put TVs, Blu-Ray players, PS3 games and clothes into her basket in a Corvallis Fred Meyer and used the Black Friday crowd as cover.

When police made contact with her, they said she also was in possession of meth.

Underwood is being held in the Benton County Jail on meth and first-degree theft charges.

Elsewhere, in Vancouver, Wash., six people were arrested for shoplifting from a Target. Police said four women and two men were seen on security cameras loading up their carts with electronics, then leaving without paying for roughly $2,000 worth of merchandise.

Police said they were alerted to the group by employees.
