Woman Arrested for Stealing Motorized Cart

WATERLOO, IA (AP) - A woman was charged with theft after police found her driving a motorized shopping cart along a road, miles from the supermarket where she had started.

Police stopped 49-year-old Julie Cae Briggs on Monday while she was driving a cart taken from a Hy-Vee.

Police say Briggs claimed the store allowed her to take the cart because she didn't have a ride home, about four miles away. She was about two miles from the store when stopped by the officer.

Hy-Vee officials say they didn't give her permission to take the cart.

Police say vehicles were swerving around the cart, which can't top 5 mph.

Briggs was charged with second-degree theft. She was later released from jail.
