A Florida woman is behind bars after she held up a postal truck with a plastic gun.

According to the Naples News, the woman, 52-year-old Leida Crisotomo of Naples, Fla., was arrested Saturday.

On Saturday, Collier County Sheriff's Office deputies reported Crisotomo pointed a gun at a jogger then stopped a United States Postal Service mail truck. She then stole a package and left the scene on a tricycle, according to CCSO.

Deputies said the gun was a plastic fake.

While being cuffed, CCSO says Crisotomo "yelled that she was God" and that "voices were telling her to do things."

Crisostomo faces felony armed robbery and aggravated assault charges.
