A woman suspected of theft was arrested earlier this month at a construction site on Southeast Sixth Avenue, according to Lacey police.

And you could say she was dressed for success.

Over the weekend of August 13, police were dispatched to the construction area after video cameras, operated by the construction company, spotted the woman who allegedly robbed the site.

Once the police arrived, they found the woman wearing a Lacey Town Employee’s helmet, vest and jacket. Lacey police didn’t recognize the woman as a city employee, so they asked her where she got it.

The woman admitted to stealing an employee’s jacket, police said.

She was later jailed for theft and trespassing at the construction site, police say.

The only major construction project on Sixth Avenue Southeast, between College Street and Sleater-Kinney Road, is a new 151-unit apartment building, according to The Olympian’s previous report.
