Female suspect flees Kohl's after confrontation with loss prevention officer

A woman reportedly fled Kohl's on Saturday after a loss prevention employee accused her of exiting the store without paying for her items.

Bloomington Police Department Sgt. Brandon Siniard said the loss prevention officer reported the theft around 6:30 p.m. at the west side store. 

Siniard said the employee saw the suspect enter the store at 5:45 p.m. and remove $237.39 worth of jewelry, bras and underwear from racks. The suspect was a white woman wearing a pink hat and gray tank top.

The employee told police the suspect detached price tags from the items as she walked through the store. She allegedly concealed the items and left the store without attempting to pay. 

Siniard said the loss prevention officer stopped the suspect outside Kohl's. The suspect would not come back inside the store or cooperate. She fled the parking lot in a Toyota Camry. 

The investigation is active.
