A former Minnesota beauty pageant queen has been convicted for switching the price tags on clothing she bought from Macy’s.
Jennifer Kline, a former Mrs. Minnesota — and later, Mrs. America — was convicted Tuesday of felony theft by swindle for creating an elaborate scheme that included conducting fraudulent returns.
State law allows for Kline’s felony charge to carry up to five years in prison.
According to court documents cited by the Star Tribune, Kline’s scheme worked like this: She would buy expensive clothing, take it home, then attach the expensive clothing’s price tags onto clothes she already owned. Then, Kline would return her old clothes to a different Macy’s and would get a refund on her credit card.
Receipts revealed Kline, from Wayzata, spent almost $5,800 on clothing at a Macy’s store in the Southdale Mall in Edina — also a wealthy Minneapolis suburb — as well as the Macy’s at the Mall of America in Bloomington, as part of her swindling scheme.
