'House of Lies' Hot Chick

Busted for Grocery Shoplifting

EXCLUSIVE

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.

Citizen's arrest? Did the clerk in the store arrest her or something? How strange. And why so many avocados? I don't get it. Was she hiding them under her skirt or putting them in large bags? I need answers to these pressing questions!

Looks like she's stealing melons not avocados

She probably drew a lot of attention walking into the store with those two melons tucked under her shirt.

Maybe she is getting food for Katy Perry's dressing room and in all the hubbub simply forgot to check-out.

I remember when Winnona Rider got caught after repeatedly stealing from a retailer in Hollywood
(Sax 5th Avenue). For all intents and purposes that was the end of her once very prolific career

Just sayin'..    

Serves her right. If she'd have gone to Stater Bros. she would have been able to afford her stuff. Gelsons is a rip, like Whole Foods...
