LEHIGH ACRES, Fla. - A career criminal was arrested Thursday morning in Lehigh Acres thanks to a tip to Crime Stoppers.

25-year-old Shanice Stewart is charged with larceny theft for stealing three carts full of merchandise from a North Fort Myers Wal Mart.  The arrest marks Stewart's 38th arrest in Lee County.

Crime Stoppers sent an alert out about the crime three weeks ago after investigators identified Stewart through surveillance videos as one of three women who took part in the thefts on Sunday October 6. 

Stewart was also arrested earlier this summer when she was arrested for  having one of her children steal a woman's wallet and then went on a shopping spree at Edison Mall.
