CAPE CORAL, Fla. -- A tube top wearing burglar changed her attire, but didn't change her behavior. 

19 year old Rainey Bennett landed behind bars at the Lee County jail for stealing from a woman at Planet Fitness.

Earlier this year she was caught on camera breaking into a home, stealing clothes and jewelry.

Cape Coral Police Department says this time she was caught on camera wearing a light top and dark capri pants as she tried to use someone else's credit cards. 

Police say a woman working out at the gym on Del Prado put her purse inside a locker. After her workout she went back and found her purse hanging on a hook in the shower with her wallet missing. 

"I think that's extremely messed up. People come here to obviously better themselves. Who would do something like that?" Taylor Pascal, who works out at Planet Fitness, said. 

After leaving Planet Fitness with the woman's wallet, Bennett headed to this CVS just down the road where she tried to spend $200 using her credit cards. 

Pascal says the locks on the lockers at Planet Fitness often go unused. 

"I personally don't even lock my stuff when it's in there because you just trust people are going to be kind enough not to take it," Pascal said. 

But she says she'll think twice next time she's at the gym.

Something Bennett didn't do after she got arrested for stealing the first time. In May, a camera on a house in Cape Coral caught Bennett knocking on the front door of a home, before going around back and breaking in through the sliding glass door. 

"I went straight to my jewelry box and I mean it was gone. A couple purses gone, perfumes. A couple days after, I start noticing that some of my clothes were gone too."
