Woman on trial for $2 pumpkin theft

UPI News Service, 02/20/2012 

The sister of a New Mexico woman charged with the theft of a $2 pumpkin said the incident was accidental.

Annette Atencio said her sister, Lauren Medina, 23, is headed to trial Tuesday for the October 2011 incident at McCall's Pumpkin Patch in Moriarty, KOAT-TV, Albuquerque, reported Monday.

"I'm in disbelief -- the more I talk about it, the angrier I get," Atencio said.

Atencio said Medina spent $75 on food at the pumpkin patch and was approached by police when she picked up a small pumpkin, worth $2, on her way out of the patch.

"(Medina) said, 'Oh my god, I'm so sorry. Can I pay for them?' (They said), 'Nope,' and she was handcuffed immediately -- end of story, no ifs or buts," Atencio said.

Medina refused to plead guilty to the theft charge.

"(Medina) is a college student, and she's never been in trouble and never been arrested," Atencio said.
