Kim Richards seems to really like Target. The troubled Real Housewives of Beverly Hills alum was arrested on Sunday, Aug. 2, for allegedly shoplifting from the retailer in San Fernando Valley, Calif., and now, the Los Angeles City Attorney tells Us Weekly that she is accused of stealing more than 100 items. The plethora of items totaled about $612.

While the exact inventory of what Richards allegedly shoplifted has yet to be revealed, the reality star’s cart was filled mainly with toys, Entertainment Tonight reports. 

The former child star was charged and arraigned on Monday, Aug. 3, on one count of petty theft. Richards, who spent the night in jail, was released on Monday, Aug. 3, on $5,000 bail.

Following her arrest, Richards’ ex-husband Monty Brinson told Entertainment Tonight he was shocked to hear the news. “I couldn’t imagine Kim stealing or shoplifting anything. She is a giver,” he said, adding he’s “guaranteed this must be some kind of mistake.”

Richards, for her part, pleaded not guilty and is due in court Aug. 20. This incident comes after she was arrested for public intoxication, battery, and resisting arrest after getting into a drunken confrontation with police at the Beverly Hills Hotel in April. Following the spat, Richards checked into multiple rehab facilities.

As previously reported by Us, Richards will not be returning to RHOBH
