TAYLOR — A 20-year-old Romulus woman who tried to steal clothing valued at $238 from JC Penney the evening of Dec. 14 was arrested for second degree retail fraud, banned from the store and taken into custody.
A loss prevention employee said he saw her enter the dressing room with eight items, and when she exited, she left three items behind, with the other five items likely concealed inside her oversized purse.
The woman then passed all points of purchase and exited the store, at which point she was approached and asked for the clothing items. She then surrendered lingerie, two pairs of pants and two jackets.
Police officers then arrested the woman, who was searched for weapons, then placed in a police vehicle and taken into custody.
