A woman who stole from a supermarket was ordered to stand outside the premises with a sign admitting her crime.

Tia Grisett was snapped holding a humiliating board in Wimauma, Florida, which said ‘I stole from a local merchant’ after trying to steal a couple of air purifiers from Wal-Mart.

As well as having to stand on the side of the road, the 21-year-old was also given a 18-month probation order.

But not everyone thought Grisett was taking it seriously after she appeared to be using a mobile phone during her punishment.

‘That is nothing. All she is doing is texting her friends and telling them she is going to be on TV. Did she have to pay any money ? No,’ wrote Facebook user Maryjane Johnson.

But Robby Stokley disagreed and thought the idea was brilliant after the local police department posted the photo on the social network on Friday, according to

He added: ‘Things like this makes me very proud to be a citizen of Bradford County.’
