EXCLUSIVE

0103-ayelet-ben-shahar-imdb
A stunning Hollywood actress just got a starring role in a crime drama  ...  she was arrested for shoplifting, but we're not talking jewelry ... we're talking avocados.

According to the police report ... Ayelet Ben-Shahar -- who has a role on "House of Lies" -- was placed under citizens arrested for allegedly pilfering $400 worth of groceries from a Gelson's Market in Studio City.

Ben-Shahar played a high-end jewelry dealer on the Showtime hit.  You would think her sweet spot would be Cartier ... not some Valley supermarket.

Could simply be a case of her debit card not working or something less sinister. I cannot see someone purposefully "shoplifting" groceries like this.

I'd be happy to feed her if she's hungry.

This sucks for her. It's just past the the holidays, and if you're stealing food then you obviously need it. Whomever placed her under citizen's arrest was just being a prick and wanted to punish a hot chick because she represented every girl that rejected him in high school.

Who can blame her? When I used to go to Gelsons in Century City, and pay for the items at the register, I thought I was the one that just got robbed!
