WEST GOSHEN TWP., Pa. (WPVI) -- A woman accused of stealing thousands of dollars worth of bagged coffee from area Wawa stores, and returning them to different locations for cash, has surrendered to authorities.

West Goshen police have identified the woman as 48-year-old Rebecca Julian of Wilmington, Delaware.

Julian allegedly confessed the crime spree, which included approximately 40 to 50 thefts beginning in early 2016, totaling more than $3,000.

The thefts occurred in southeastern Pennsylvania, Delaware, New Jersey and Maryland.

Police say Julian would walk into one store and steal numerous bags of coffee from the coffee island. She would then drive a short distance and return them to another store for cash.

Formal charges are pending at this time, but she is expected to face theft and related charges.

Authorities tell us Julian surrendered after seeing surveillance video of herself that aired on Action News.
