It looks like Winona "sticky fingers" Ryder has been caught stealing again and trying to get a ten finger discount. Winona Ryder, who was nominated for Oscars for "The Age of Innocence"and "Little Women," took on a real-life role as a defendant after her Dec. 12, 2001, arrest at Saks Fifth Avenue in Beverly Hills. She was acquitted of burglary, but convicted of grand theft and vandalism for stealing $5,560.40 worth of designer merchandise. Winona Ryder explained the incident to Vogue blaming her sticky fingers on her addiction to prescription medication. Her excuse for stealing is almost as good as actress Bai Ling's who was arrested for shoplifting magazines and batteries and an airport. Bai Ling blamed the incident on her breakup with a boyfriend. The D.A. in her shoplifting case stated there was evidence of prior incidents of stealing by Winona Ryder.
"We have videotapes of two prior instances wherein she is seen doing the identical conduct that they will see on the video in our case ... selecting items, concealing those items underneath heavy garment bags or underneath her own clothing, in and out of dressing rooms and ultimately walking out of the store without paying for the item," Rundle said.

According to the publication, when she left the store, she set off an alarm that drew the attention of a security guard. A store employee is quoted as saying: "Winona had a bag of stuff, but she set off the theft alarm when she left the store.
"When a security guard stopped her, he found make-up she had not paid for."
And when she was asked about the make-up, Winona answered: "I don't know how that happened."
The store employee added: "We took unpaid items back and she left the store."
Winona's publicist at first denied the incident took place. But when told a store employee had confirmed it, said she would check with her again.
In Winona's past shoplifting scandal back in 2002, she claimed as part of her defence that she stole from a Beverly Hills store to prepare for a film role.
But the court found her guilty, and she was sentenced to three years probation and 480 hours of community service. source
