THE TRUTH ABOUT WINONA RYDER’S SHOPLIFTING
It’s nice that Winona Ryder, 44, is making a bit of a comeback with her new Netflix series “Stranger Things” – she spent years away from Hollywood after her scandalous drug and shoplifting bust at Saks Fifth Avenue in Beverly Hills. Too bad she doesn’t seem to have learned a lesson from that awful experience. In a new magazine interview she minimized her arrest with the excuse “It wasn’t the crime of the century” and avoided details: “It wasn’t what you think.” Actually, it was much WORSE than you thought. We were THERE investigating and learned that she shoplifted in MANY stores that never pressed charges because she was a sweet looking celebrity. In fact she was FAMOUS for her sticky fingers – one store showed us a security tape of her stealing! (Unfortunately, they wouldn’t sell that tape!) Not only did she rob many stores by taking loads of clothing into the dressing room and wearing some out under her jackets, but her car trunk was packed with her loot – new clothes with tags that she sold to resale stores! Clerks in the resale shops spilled the beans. Winona’s stealing WAS a big deal and if she doesn’t think so, she still needs help.
