A Brandon woman managed to pay her way out of a shoplifting charge, but her fraudulent identification is a different matter.

Police say they were called by security from a store in the 900-block of Victoria Avenue on Thursday, reporting that they had stopped two females for shoplifting. Security allowed the pair to pay for the merchandise that they were trying to steal and to leave the store, but when officers arrived, they ran a computer check on the two names.

That's when they learned that one of the suspects had provided ID that actually beloned to a dead woman.

She was later tracked down and arrested, although she's since been released; police say she told them that she'd bought the ID in Winnipeg.

A 28-year-old Brandon woman will have to be in court on Sept. 25, where she'll face charges of personation, public mischief and possession of stolen property.
