Former Beauty Queen Accused of Stealing From Texas Mall

A former West Texas beauty queen has been accused of shoplifting a $69 shirt from a mall store.

Miss El Paso USA 2008 Lorena Tavera on Monday denied the theft allegation and said she plans to contact an attorney.

El Paso police arrested the 21-year-old Tavera after store workers Friday night noticed the theft and followed her outside the business.

Tavera, who allegedly concealed the shirt in a shopping bag, was confronted and detained for police.

El Paso County Jail records show Tavera also had two outstanding traffic court warrants. She was freed Saturday after posting $728 bond.
