Erica Ramos was arrested and charged with theft. But police were not called to the Moorestown Mall over the wet change. Rather, police said Ramos had a device intended to make shoplifting easier.

Police said Ramos had a foil-lined bag, called a booster bag, that renders security sensors useless.

Police said they wouldn't usually arrest someone for taking money from a wishing well, but they said Ramos she admitted taking the coins after police responded to a report of an attempted shoplifting.
