More than 100 graphing calculators were seized from a Las Vegas woman in Minnesota last week.

According to WDAZ in Minnesota, 23-year-old Antesha Smith was pulled over April 14 in Moorhead, Minn., for having a license plate registered to another car. The officer then searched the vehicle after discovering the car affiliated with the license plate had been stolen.

During the officer's search, WDAZ reported he found 108 Texas Instruments graphing calculators and an Alpha Alarm stick -- a security device used to deactivate the alarm on items.

According to WDAZ, Smith told the officer she purchased the calculators out of state and was planning to sell them in Las Vegas.

Smith was arrested on charges of receiving stolen property, possession of burglary or theft tools, and bringing stolen goods into the state, according to WDAZ.
