Why is sausage news always amusing?

A woman was arrested and charged Monday with stealing several packages of soap and a pack of sausages from a store, according to an arrest affidavit.

Etta Ellison, 49, was seen putting a package of sausages, two packs of Dove soap, and a pack of Jergens soap in her purse by a cashier at the City Market on Airport Boulevard, according to the affidavit.

The cashier said Ellison put the items in her purse and left the store without paying, the affidavit states. The items total $10.94. Because Ellison has two prior theft convictions, according to the affidavit, this charge is a state jail felony that is punishable up to two years in a state jail if convicted.
