From Martin County Sheriff’s Office: 30-year old Ishella Silvena Richards of Deerfield Beach paid little attention to price reductions at the Toys “R” Us store in Jensen Beach.

Instead, she didn’t want to pay anything at all.

That’s why she loaded up her shopping cart with over $1,700 worth of toys and other items and headed out the door.

Despite employees best attempts to stop her from leaving with the unpaid merchandise, she left anyway. Richards ran in to the parking lot, loaded her SUV, and sped off down US 1.

Fortunately, deputies in the area spotted that SUV.

Richards tried to outrun them, but failed.

Once stopped, Richards was placed in handcuffs.

Inside the vehicle, in plain view, deputies saw mounds of stolen toys valued at $1,797.30.

Ishella Silvena Richards was arrested for grand theft and fleeing and eluding.

She was taken to the Martin County Jail with a $10,000 bond.
