Vero Beach — Authorities say a woman tried to sneak more than $1 800 worth of electronics through a Florida Walmart's self-checkout by switching the items' price tags with those from clearance items.

Treasure Coast Newspapers reports that 25-year-old Cheyenne Amber West was arrested on Monday and charged with felony grand theft and felony shoplifting.

An arrest report says a loss-prevention officer at the Vero Beach Walmart told a deputy he saw West and another woman select a computer, video game controllers and other merchandise from the electronics department.

The report says West covered the bar codes with stickers removed from less expensive items that rang up to just $3.70.

West was free on $3 000 bail. Jail records didn't list an attorney.

The woman who was with West wasn't arrested.
