Police arrested woman for having $2,500 in Stanley cups in her car

The passion for Stanley stainless steel drinking cups reached new heights this week when a woman was arrested and charged with stealing 65 of them from a California retailer, valued at about $2,500.

Roseville police in Placer County, northeast of Sacramento, said Sunday that they were alerted Wednesday to a report of a theft from a store on Stanford Ranch Road in the city.

“Staff witnessed a woman taking a shopping cart full of Stanley water bottles without paying for them. “The suspect refused to stop for staff and stuffed her car with stolen merchandise,” police claimed in a Facebook statement.

“An officer spotted the suspect vehicle as it entered Highway 65 from Galleria Blvd and initiated a traffic stop,” according to the report.

The 23-year-old lady from Sacramento has yet to be identified and is facing grand theft charges. Police posted photos of her car trunk and passenger seat loaded with several mugs.

Stanley cups have grown extremely popular in recent months, thanks to a trend fueled by social media influencers. The Quencher cup, which contains 40 fluid ounces and costs $45 on the Stanley website, has been particularly popular.

“While Stanley Quenchers are all the rage, we strongly advise against turning to crime to fulfill your hydration habits,” the law enforcement agency said.
