This chick's $2,500 check out scam will make you feel better about that pastry you pretended was an onion

News 15/11/2017

A US woman used a self-checkout scanner to nab herself a real bargain, taking NZ$2500 worth of electronics for less than $5.

Cheyenne Amber West took stickers from clearance items in a Florida Walmart and placed them on a computer, video games and other electronics, Sebastian Daily reports.

But she was caught out, along with her mother, when suspicious staff went over surveillance footage.

West was arrested and charged with felony grand theft and retail theft.

"I am just trying to get gifts for my son that I cannot afford," she told the deputy sheriff, according to Sebastian Daily.

"The computer is for my husband since he just got me a Coach purse, I figured he deserved something nice as well."

Cheers to Newshub for this article. The Chillsville team, Lew and Ro, asked George listeners if they had any check out scaning scams to share themselves... 

And god damn, you lot are a bunch of slimy bastards. Listen above.
