A woman caught shoplifting turns out to be a member of law enforcement.
Forty-two year-old Edna Hinojosa was arrested over the weekend for taking two sets of earrings worth $38 from the JC Penny at Mall Del Norte.

Upon further investigation, it was found that Hinojosa works as a TAMIU police officer.
The university confirmed her employment but would not comment any further.
