PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP) _ Police say a Providence woman stole hundreds of dollars’ worth of food and clothes from a Whole Foods store.

31-year-old Lavina Qualls has been charged with shoplifting, simple assault and resisting arrest.

Police say an officer assigned to a police detail at the East Side store found lobster salad, caviar sturgeon, shrimp and other seafood in her purse Saturday night. She also allegedly had nine articles of clothing.

Police say the stolen items were worth more than $400.

Qualls allegedly pushed an officer after she was stopped and attempted to leave the store.

An attorney for Qualls could not immediately be found in court records. She is due in court Nov. 23.
