Now you know why some stores mandate you leave your backpack outside.

Late Sunday evening a 35-year-old woman was arrested after she allegedly stuffed over $200 worth of items into a cooler backpack at a Kennewick retail store.

Police say around 11:34 pm they got the call about the alleged theft, and although police didn't say it appeared to be at the Rite Aid store.

Amanda Clawson was found and detained nearby, she was identified by witnesses as the person who stuff the backpack cooler full of items. She had apparently discarded the backpack, hoping to return later and get it.

She's now in the Benton County jail on various charges, including False Reporting (Lying about your identity!)
