An Auburn woman is in jail after allegedly stealing more than $10,000 worth of items from vendors at a home show.

Officers were dispatched about 9:30 a.m. Friday to the Auburn Home Show at the Gold Country Fairgrounds regarding a report of a woman attempting to steal alcohol from the bar. They contacted 27-year-old Lindsey Inchaurregi. As officers were investigating the matter, they were contacted by five vendors who reported numerous items totaling more than $12,000 had been stolen from their displays, according to an Auburn Police Department news release.

Upon further investigation, officers found more than $10,000 in stolen property.
