Woman Arrested After Cruise For Stealing Pack Of Cigarettes In 1991

CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla. (CBS Tampa/AP) — A woman returning from a cruise vacation is being held in a central Florida jail on a warrant from 1991.

Brevard County Jail records show 41-year-old Robin Hall is being held on an out-of-county warrant. She’ll stay there until she is transferred to Orange County — possibly on Thursday — where she was arrested more than 20 years ago for stealing a pack of cigarettes at a local Wal-Mart. She was 18 at the time.

Hall tells WESH-TV she owes the state $85 in court costs.

“I just want it all to be over so I can go home,” Hall told the station.

She was taken into custody last week after arriving at Port Canaveral from vacation with her family. WESH reports that when authorities checked the cruise ship’s passenger list for terrorists, they found a warrant for Hall.

WESH-TV reports that Hall, who is an architect, designs jet engines for Pratt & Whitney.

Jail records don’t list an attorney.
