23-year-old woman steals thousands of dollars worth of Stanley cups

The woman was arrested for grand theft after walking out of a Roseville store with a shopping cart full of Stanley cups.

Stanley cups – insulated tumblers, not the NHL championship trophy – have gone viral on social media, leading to massive sales for the 111-year-old company. 

But the popularity has also led to theft, as last week a Sacramento woman was arrested for allegedly stealing $2,500 worth of cups. 


The big picture: The woman is accused of stealing thousands of dollars of merchandise from a retail store in Roseville. 

  • According to the Roseville Police Department, store staff saw a woman take a shopping cart full of Stanley water bottles without paying for them. 
  • The woman refused to stop for staff and proceeded to stuff her car with the cups. 
  • An officer spotted the suspect vehicle when it entered Highway 65 and initiated a traffic stop. 
  • The officer then arrested the 23-year-old woman for grand theft and recovered 65 Stanley products. 

What they’re saying: “While Stanley Quenchers are all the rage, we strongly advise against turning to crime to fulfill your hydration habits,” Roseville PD said on Facebook. “The Roseville Police Department remains committed to stopping retail theft.”
