SANTA CRUZ, Calif. (AP) - A woman authorities call the “Bubbly Bandit” because of an alleged taste for stealing high-end champagne has been arrested on California’s central coast.

Santa Cruz police say they’d been looking for Laurie Soderman since she stole $600 in champagne from the Shopper’s Corner grocery store last month.

The theft was caught on camera and police had been circulating photos.

KNTV-TV (https://bit.ly/1MsoWIN) reports that Soderman has a long history of theft and was on probation for prior convictions. It wasn’t clear whether she’d hired an attorney.
