EASTON, Pa. -

A woman was arrested for shoplifting two bags of coffee from a Dunkin Donuts store two months ago, officials said.

Ruth Ann Gruhler put the coffee in her jacket and walked out of the Dunkin Donuts in the 1300 block of Northampton Street in Easton at 6:10 p.m. on Dec. 16, officials said.

Police caught up with Gruhler in the 900 block of Northampton Street, and, using store surveillance video, confirmed that she was the woman wearing a red shirt and white pants and jacket who took the coffee, officials said.

Gruhler, 50, of 117 North 4th St., Easton, was arraigned Wednesday on a retail theft charge and committed to the Northampton County Prison on $3,000 bail, according to court documents.

A preliminary hearing is set for 10 a.m. Feb. 20.
