A 53-year-old woman in California was arrested by authorities after she was caught licking grocery items.
KAMI learned that the suspect, Jennifer Walker, had a cart full of grocery items including meat and alcoholic drinks.
The catch was that the woman had no plans of buying the items in her cart.
ABS-CBN reported that as per Chris Fiore, spokesperson of South Lake Tahoe police, they were called to respond at Safeway Store last Tuesday because of reports of the woman's acts.

The coronavirus outbreak started out in Wuhan, Hubei Province of China. Scientists believed that the virus came from an animal at one of Wuhan's wet markets. At present, the Philippines is under a state of calamity while the entire Luzon is under an enhanced community quarantine.
