Lake Worth woman charged with stealing bicycle and exposing herself

LAKE WORTH, Fla. - A woman who celebrates her 34th birthday today was arrested Saturday night after police say she stole a bicycle, gave it back to its owner, and then exposed herself while inside a Circle K store.

Danielle Moffet, of Lake Worth, was arrested on charges of possession of a schedule IV substance, disorderly conduct, unlawful possession of prescription drug, and petit theft.

According to Greenacres Public Safety officers, around 7:30 p.m. Saturday they were called to a Circle K store on Lake Worth Road in response to a stolen bicycle.

Clinton Culpepper, 30, told police that Moffet stole his purple Terran women's bike while he was in a store shopping. The West Palm Beach man said he ran after Moffet for about 25 feet and then she gave the bike back. He followed her to the Circle K and called police, a probable cause affidavit says.

A responding police officer then questioned 51-year-old Pappu Rahim, a Circle K clerk. He said Moffet was inside the bathroom and had been there for about five minutes. The officer waited outside, and about three minutes later, 22-year-old Matt Shewalter came out of the gas station and said he couldn't believe what had just happened.

He said someone wanted to use the bathroom, so the clerk knocked on the door and a woman, later identified as Moffet, came out of the bathroom with no shirt on, exposing herself.

She yelled to the clerk and asked if "this is what you wanted to see," while pointing at herself, the affidavit says.

The clerk, some other customers, and a 6-year-old boy were all present during the exposing incident.

Moffet went back into the bathroom and the officer knocked on the door. She had her shirt on this time, but couldn't give a reason as to why she had earlier come outside with no shirt on. Moffet said she never attempted to take anyone's bike.

After searching her, officers found Lorazepam and Amoxicillin pulls in a blue Ziploc bag inside her purse. She did not have a prescription or the prescription bottle for them, the affidavit says.
