AUSTIN, Texas — A woman was arrested in Austin Wednesday after allegedly stealing $1 from a food truck customer.

At approximately 6:20 a.m. Wednesday, an Austin police officer was dispatched to 9027 Northgate Blvd., where, according to Yelp, the Taqueria Las Niñas food truck is located. The 911 call was for a reported robbery.

When the officer arrived, they found 52-year-old Gina Dianne Guidry sitting on the curb and the victim standing next to a police vehicle.

The victim told police she was purchasing food from the food truck when Guidry approached her and said, "Give me some money." When the victim said no, Guidry got within a few inches of her and yelled, "Give me some money, b****!"

At this point, the victim had already purchased her food and was waiting for her change. She was given $2 in change and once it was in her hands, she said Guidry snatched it and walked away on foot.

When the officer arrived on the scene, the victim was pointing at Guidry, saying, "She was the one that took my money!"

When the officer spoke to the victim and asked her about what happened, Guidry could hear the conversation. The officer asked the victim how much money was taken from her and she replied $2, to which Guidry interjected, "I only took $1, b****!" The officer asked Guidry if she still had the dollar on her, and she said yes. The officer asked the victim if she gave Guidry effective consent to take the money, and she said no.

The victim said she wanted to press charges, so Guidry was arrested and charged with theft from a person, a state jail felony. 

She is currently being held in the Travis County Jail on a $12,000 bond.
