PORT CANAVERAL, Fla. — The lesson here kids is… don’t steal.

A woman was arrested in Florida last Thursday while wrapping up a Disney cruise ship vacation over a petty crime she committed two decades earlier.

Robin Hall, who’s now married and has two children, was arrested when police checked the ship’s registry to see if any potential terrorists were on-board.

Hall admitted she stole cigarettes in 1991 and had an unpaid court fee of $85. A warrant was later issued for her arrest.

Since the fine was never paid, the warrant was considered outstanding and cops arrested her.

“‘I take full responsibility for what I did — I do not believe I deserve this,” she told a Connecticut TV station.

To add insult to injury, Hall said she can’t post bail because the crime happened in a different county from where’s she’s currently being held and has to be transferred. Something that might not happen until next week because of Monday’s holiday.
