Fruitport Township police arrested the woman Wednesday when security devices on the valuables triggered an alarm at The Lakes Mall store.

Officers believe the woman lined her purse with aluminum foil to try to interfere with security tags on the merchandise. The woman faces additional charges for having a foil-lined purse, which is illegal in Michigan.

"The woman faces additional charges for having a foil-lined purse, which is illegal in Michigan."

It's also illegal in Michigan to substitute a cow for a mother-in-law during a wedding ceremony if said cow is wearing short pants.
