(Scroll down for video) A woman who was enjoying a vacation with her family, was arrested by police on an outstanding warrant.

Her crime of shoplifting cigarettes was committed 22 years ago.

Robin Hall, a mother of two children, enjoyed a Disney Dream Cruise with her husband and two children. When they arrived back at shore, the woman was pulled to the side and told she was under arrest on the old warrant.

The woman was informed that back in 1991, she failed to pay an $85 fine.

The strangest part of the story is how the police found Hall. Authorities checked the cruise passengers list to allegedly find terrorists. Instead, they found a U.S. productive citizen, who had a 22-year-old warrant for shoplifting a pack of cigarettes from Walmart, when she was 18 years old.

Police waited for her at Port Canaveral, and arrested her as soon as she came off the boat with her family.

The woman was jailed in Brevard County, Florida. Her family wanted to post bail, but officials refused to accept bail, citing a jurisdiction issue. The woman was arrested in Brevard County, but the crime was committed in Orange County.

She has to be transferred to Orange County before being released. However, because she was
arrested on a holiday weekend, she might have to stay in jail until Thursday.

Interestingly enough, when it came to arresting the mother of two, there were no jurisdiction issues.

Since the theft of the cigarettes in 1991, Hall had gone to college, got a degree in architecture and she now helps design jet engines for Pratt & Whitney in Connecticut.
