Ryder’s take: Does shoplifting pay?

Print More

A Los Angeles judge must decide how to dispose of the $5,500 in goods that Winona Ryder shoplifed from Saks Fifth Avenue. Among items catalogued by The Los Angeles Times: a $760 Marc Jacobs cashmere thermal top, $300 Gucci shoes, a $540 Natori handbag, a $225 Eric Javits hat, hairpieces and two Yves St. Laurent blouses. Ryder’s lawyer says the actress wants to auction the goods for charity, saying it is silly to burn it. Prosecutor Ann Rundle said the items should be destoyed, at Saks’ request. Otherwise, she said, Ryder would “maintain a tax deduction benefit, as well as a publicity advantage…this would not serve the purpose of deterring her future criminal conduct — as well as sending the wrong message to the community that ‘Crime DOES Pay.’ ”
