Woman robs Cleveland boutique when she comes up 80 cents short on purchase

A woman who came up 80 cents short on a purchase in a Cleveland boutique ended up deciding to cut her losses and just rob the place.

Police say the suspect went into Edna Boutique to shop for clothes Tuesday afternoon and was 80 cents short for two pairs of jeans. She told the cashier she had change in her car and went outside.

When she wasn't able to find the change she needed, she walked back into the store and told the people behind the counter she was just going to rob them instead.

The suspect was a little over-confident as witnesses said she walked right behind the counter into the back room, pushed a victim out of the way, grabbed the cash box and walked right out of the front door.

The suspect did not have a weapon and did not verbally threaten anyone, according to police.

The money box is an aqua blue, football-shaped travel box with $62 and the keys to the store inside.

The suspect stated her name was Lisa for the registry, is 5 feet 5 inches tall, 160 pounds with dyed red hair in a pony tail and was last seen wearing a burgundy windbreaker.
