eBay shoplifter nabbed in France

BESANCON, France (AFP) - A debt-ridden French shoplifter who sold stolen supermarket items on eBay is to face justice after police became suspicious about her low-priced loot, officials said Thursday.

The 33-year-old woman, who is estimated to have stolen more than 85,000 euros' (120,000 dollars') worth of goods from the Leclerc store in her hometown of Doubs, eastern France, since 2005, is due to appear in court December 7 following her arrest.

Officers zeroed in on eBay vendor "RapidDVD" after coming across DVDs, video games, CDs and razor blades she was selling well below market price, still in their original wrapping.
