BAYOU VISTA, LA (WAFB) -

A 21-year-old woman apparently went to extremes in her attempts to stay cool in the intense heat the area has been experiencing.

The St. Mary Parish Sheriff's Office reported Ebony Charles of Shriever tried to steal an air conditioner from the Walmart in Bayou Vista on Tuesday.

Deputies said a store manager told them she ran away without the unit, but also left her wallet behind.

Charles called SMPSO later in the day to get her wallet back.

A deputy found her and charged her with criminal trespass.

She was released and issued a summons to appear in court in October.
