A woman known as the “bubbly bandit” turned herself in to authorities on Monday.
Santa Cruz police say Laurie Soderman was caught on camera last month allegedly stealing $600 worth of high-end champagne from the Shopper's Corner store in the 600 block of Soquel Avenue.
Investigators posted a picture from a surveillance camera on their Facebook page last week. The next day, they received a tip, identifying the woman.
Soderman has an extensive history of theft and was out on probation for prior convictions, authorities said.
