A Florida woman bragged to police officers after she played a game to steal a cartful of merchandise from Walmart.

The Flager County Sheriff’s Office released body camera footage of their interaction with 30-year-old Amber McCann at a Walmart store in Palm Coast, Florida on Monday, March 25.

“We’re doing an investigation right now,” an officer is heard telling McCann in the Walmart parking lot. “Apparently someone walked out with…”

“A cart? Yeah, that’s me,” McCann is heard telling the officer.

McCann told police that she was playing a game called “21,” which involves a person grabbing as much merchandise as they can from a store and walking out without paying — while trying not to get caught.

“It was a game I was playing,” McCann said. “It’s really, really fun!”

“Well it’s not a game, it’s theft,” a police officer told her. “Okay, going to jail is fun.”

She claimed that she placed that merchandise in a “random” car and then left when she noticed police in the area.

After McCann was taken into custody, she admitted to police that the car had not been random, but belonged to her boyfriend.

“My boyfriend doesn’t know that I steal. And he doesn’t know that I put all this sh– in the car, neither,” McCann said. “So I’m going to be really in trouble with him, but that’s the thing.”

Stolen items

When removing approximately $1,030 in stolen goods from her boyfriend’s vehicle, authorities discovered illegal drugs in her car.

Police said that they found a digital scale, hashish, a glass pipe with burnt residue, and empty bags of marijuana, methamphetamine and alprazolam.
