ALLEN PARK — Police were dispatched to the parking lot of Bath & Body Works, 2260 N. Fairlane Drive, for a woman seen pulling on door handles March 28. The same woman allegedly fled Home Depot about an hour earlier.
Police located her nearby, seated on a bench in front of T.J. Maxx. They advised her that she had been identified as tampering with cars and matched the description of a shoplifter at Home Depot. She responded by saying that she had been looking for her ride and had given the merchandise back to Home Depot.
With verbal consent, the officer checked her purse for weapons or store merchandise. Upon opening the bag, the officer found a crack pipe sticking out of a makeup bag, a straw with power residue and a pill bottle with a suspected rock of crystal meth.
The woman was arrested and transported to the Allen Park Police Department where citations for violation of controlled substance, drug paraphernalia were issued.
