Crime Report: Women Accused of Shoplifting from Walmart in Canton
The following information was provided by the Canton Township and Plymouth Township police departments. Arrests do not indicate convictions.
The store’s loss prevention officer told police he was monitoring the store on video and observed three women in the women’s and girls' clothing departments selecting various merchandise from the shelves without any regard to price and concealing the items in their purses, the report said.
The employee told police the women then paid for some non-concealed merchandise without offering payment for the concealed items, at which point he made contact with the women. He recovered $44.44 in merchandise from one woman, $60.23 from another and $8.50 from the third woman. The employee told police he would pursue charges for the two women accused of taking the more valuable items.
Police arrested the two women on charges of third-degree retail fraud and drove the third woman to the police station so she could secure a ride home. The two women charged with retail fraud were given an Aug. 8 court date.
