A sick Mexican woman suffering from chronic haemorrhoids, varicose veins and diarrhoea was caught after she was unable to make a particularly quick getaway when stealing over two dozen packs of medicine to help ease her condition.
Daniela Cervantes Martinez, 39, said her life was being made a misery by the complaints but the medicine was too expensive and so she decided to steal it by shoving the packets under her clothing.
But she was spotted by pharmaceutical store staff in a shopping centre in the city of Cancun, in the south-eastern Mexican state of Quintana Roo, who were alerted by the fact that the woman was walking strangely and appeared to be rather lumpy in places.
Police spokesman Jason Rincon Perez said: "The staff were suspicious that she may have stolen something and called security guards. She didn't try to run away from them, but instantly admitted what she had done but said the medicines were just too expensive and so she had tried to steal them."
She was handed over to police and will be charged with theft after stealing three packets of Nikzon tablets, 14 boxes of Treda tablets and nine boxes of Goicotabs.
A spokesman for the store said: "We sympathise with her position but at the end of the day medicines need to be paid for, and anybody who attempts to steal here will have to face the consequences the matter how desperate the circumstances."
