See what had happened was...

Lydia Marie Cormaney faces up to 10 years in prison and a $10,000 fine when Wyoming police caught the 23-year-old lifting nearly $2,000 worth of stolen merchandise from a local Walmart. Yet when confronted by authorities, Cormaney said she wasn’t stealing per se, but instead conducting research on kleptomania.

Cormaney eventually fessed up and told cops she got sticky fingers when she was forced to move into a new dorm room and her old roommate kept most of the household items. According to reports, Cormaney was released from prison last Thursday.
