It's hard to resist the allure of French fries. Typically, indulging in some will cost you no more than several dollars.

However, a woman recently ended up paying far more for her craving.

According to WUSA, she was arrested on Wednesday after allegedly taking three French fries from a police officer's plate at a Washington, D.C. restaurant.

The unidentified woman reportedly decided to sit next to the officer, then reached over and grabbed two fries. The officer warned her to stop.

In a police report, he is quoted as saying, "I then politely asked D-1 to not do that again because I paid for that food and she was stealing from me and she could be arrested for theft of my food."

As you would have guessed what happened next, the woman proceeded to grab the third fry and that's when she was arrested and charged with theft.

"French Fried Potato...quantity 3," is how the stolen property was described in the police report.

The fate of the remaining fries on the officer's plate is unknown.
