A woman wound up wet and muddy after shoplifting from a Michigan City hardware store.

That's according to police.....who were called Wednesday to Kabelin Ace Hardware near

the Marquette Mall.

Police say a 36 year old woman took some tools and flower seed packages.....

and when confronted fled out the doors into a nearby swamp.

Witnesses say she was in waist high water......and eventually came out when

police threatened to send in a dog.

According to police....the woman said she fled because she's a nurse and doesn't want

her license to practice taken away.

Prosecutors are reviewing the case to decide whether to file charges.
