Authorities have accused a St. Louis woman of stealing a ring from a jewelry store.

Taneesha Wise, 23, was charged Nov. 18 with second-degree theft.

According to online court documents, Wise entered a store to inquire about jewelry. Once the store clerk showed her a large $7,000 ring, Wise grabbed it and ran for the door.

She was unable to leave the store because employees stopped her.

Wise later reportedly admitted that she was planning on stealing a whole tray of earrings but decided to just steal the ring instead.

Second-degree theft is a Class-D felony.
