The manager of Spencer's at WestGate Mall told police that a woman tried to steal a sex toy from the store Thursday afternoon.
The manager said the woman selected a vibrator and slid it behind a young child in a stroller before leaving the store.
The suspect was later identified as Misty Ann Lee, 38, of 147 Scruggs Ave., Spartanburg.
The store manager said she confronted Lee who initially looked like she did not know what the manager was talking about and then retrieved the toy from the stroller, according to a Spartanburg Police Department incident report.
Lee was charged with shoplifting, according to online jail records.
