A woman was arrested in Auburn on Friday after she tried to walk out of a business without paying for the merchandise she had picked up.

The Auburn Police Department arrested 21-year-old Samaria E. Vanderbilt after she was observed shoplifting from a business in the 1700 block of S. College Street.

Police officers responded to the business at 1 p.m. where they were informed that Vanderbilt was observed placing assorted merchandise totaling over $900 into two duffle bags and placing them in a shopping cart with a flat screen television.

Vanderbilt was transported to the Lee County Jail and is being held on a $3,000 bond.
