Denise Davis, Mugshot of the Day: Saddest Shoplifter Ever

Today's entrant in the Mugshot of the Year award bespeaks sadness, gloom, the bleak emptiness that comes when you realize you're getting jail time for allegedly shoplifting at a Harlingen Beall's.

Not that Denise Davis, 38, didn't have high-toned tastes: She's accused of lifting two $77 bottles of Armani fragrance.

Police say she grabbed the items, ran out the door and got away in a black Pontiac.

Her luck didn't hold, though. About an hour later, cops got a call for suspicious activity involving a black Pontiac. They arrested Davis, but the perfume was nowhere to be found.

They then took her to the city jail, where she expressed her sorrow via mugshot.
