One pharmacy employee got creative with her method for stealing prescription pills, but she wasn’t clever enough to not get caught.

Gabriel Brown, who worked at a Walmart pharmacy in Florida, was arrested on 2 counts of possession of barbiturates and one count of grand theft, The Palm Beach Post reported.

The 20-year-old pharmacy employee was discovered on video allegedly stealing bottles of alprazolam and dumping them in a trashcan. She would then take the trash into the bathroom and collect the pills.

According to police, Walmart supervisors said Brown had done this on several occasions.

When confronted, Brown said she stole 15 bottles containing 100 pills, The Palm Beach Post reported. She admitted to retrieving the pills after taking out the trash at the end of her shift.

The woman said she was stealing on behalf of a man who lives in the Tampa, Florida, area.

She was released from jail on Friday, December 11, 2015, after posting a $9000 bond, according to The Palm Beach Post.
