Many people would pay a lot of money to see Miley Cyrus perform, buy a Cyrus poster or any other Cyrus souvenir.

One man wanted the “Mylie” blow up doll, but he did not want to pay the $19.99 - so he stole it instead.

The North Carolina man is facing shoplifting charges after he allegedly stole the blow-up doll resembling Miley Cyrus.

Benjamin Greene, 22, was caught after allegedly trying to steal the item from Spencer’s Gifts store in Spartanburg, South Carolina. A worker told police that she saw Greene remove the “Finally Mylie! Love Doll” from its box and hide the doll inside his coat.

As he left the store, Greene was confronted by a Spencer’s employee, who told investigators that the blow-up doll fell out of Greene’s jacket.

The “Mylie” doll was released after the pop singer turned 18 years old.

While the doll itself doesn't actually look like the celebrity, the item’s packaging includes a photo of a Cyrus lookalike holding a guitar.

Greene was booked into the Spartanburg County jail on a misdemeanor shoplifting charge. He was later freed without bond.
