A Sterling Heights woman was arrested on Wednesday, April 3, in connection with a retail fraud involving clothing and accessories at a Bloomfield Township department store, police said.
Bloomfield Township police officers responding about 8 p.m. to Target, 2400 Telegraph Road, spoke with a loss prevention manager at the store who said he observed the woman change the price tag on a pair of leggings, and conceal jewelry and makeup in her coat pockets.
