A woman shoplifted an estimated $891 worth of merchandise from Kohl's



Police are looking for a woman who shoplifted an estimated $891 worth of merchandise from Kohl's on Whitehall Crossing Boulevard.

Sgt. Brandon Lopossa said a woman walked into the Kohl's at about 3:55 p.m. Thursday. 

Lopossa said the suspect took a cart full of clothing into one of the fitting rooms with her and was in the fitting room for about 2 hours. Based on security camera footage from the store, after exiting the fitting room, the woman was wearing some of the clothes she had entered with. 

The woman then walked to the front of the store, still having some of the clothes in her cart and got on her phone. She was looking around to make sure no one was watching her, Lopossa said.

When she left the store with some of the clothes in the cart and wearing the rest, she was followed out and confronted by Kohl's loss prevention employees. 

Lopossa said the woman began to cuss at the security guards and grabbed her backpack out of the shopping cart with the other clothes. 

The security guards grabbed the clothing in the shopping cart, but the woman got in her car and drove away before they could stop her, Lopossa said.

Police said this investigation is still active.
