Sara Huegill, the wife of former Olympian Geoff Huegill, has been arrested for allegedly stealing a pair of $2500 leather pants from a boutique in Byron Bay.
The Daily Telegraph reports the 34-year-old was shopping at the Island Luxe store, in the northern NSW town, on Sunday afternoon.
Staff claim they saw the mother-of-two place a pair of Bassike pants in her handbag, before walking out of the store without paying.
NSW police confirmed to Mamamia, that just after 2.30pm on Sunday, officers from the Mounted Unit arrested a woman on Fletcher St in Byron Bay, after an alleged theft at a nearby store.
A police spokeswoman said the 34-year-old was taken to Byron Bay Police Station, where she was issued a Field Court Attendance Notice for shoplifting.
She is due to appear in Byron Bay local court on Thursday, June 7.
The spokeswoman confirmed the property was recovered and returned to the store, but would not disclose any further information about the item involved.
According to the Daily Telegraph, the store manager followed Huegill for 200m on foot before flagging down the two mounted police officers.
Huegill’s lawyers released a statement to the Daily Telegraph on her behalf.
