09/08/2017 - Loss prevention employees at a Rochester Hills department store on Tuesday, August 29, stopped two different alleged shoplifting incidents that resulted in the arrest of two individuals, authorities said.
Oakland County sheriff's deputies responded about 1:30 p.m on the report of a retail fraud at Kohl's, 223 E. Auburn Road, where the store's loss prevention employees detained a 32-year-old St. Clair Shores woman.
Staff told deputies the woman selected several items from the shelves and took them into a fitting room, but didn't appear to be carrying the items on the way out of the fitting room, nor were the items left in the fitting room. Staff stopped the woman as she exited the store without paying for any merchandise and located the items in her purse and in a Kohl's shopping bag, deputies said.
The woman was arrested in connection with retail fraud and transported to the Oakland County Sheriff's Rochester Hills substation, where she was fingerprinted and issued a citation for retail fraud. She was released pending an arrest warrant.
Deputies responded just after 5 p.m. the same day for a second alleged shoplifting incident involving a 49-year-old Shelby Township resident.
Loss prevention employees told deputies the woman selected two sets of earrings and a ring, putting the items in her purse before walking out without paying. The woman was stopped by staff and detained until deputies arrived.
The woman was fingerprinted, ticketed for retail fraud, and released pending an arrest warrant.
