When you get caught with a silks purse in Tempe, it could get you arrested
Tempe police say a woman who was caught with $2,500 in a silken purse could get herself arrested for trespassing.
Police say on Wednesday, the 34-year-old woman was arrested after she walked into the shop to buy flowers for a customer.
She said she had to buy a flower in her purse, and she tried to get away, but she was detained by police.

It’s not clear what was inside.
