Police looking for alleged shoplifters

Posted: October 11, 2012 - 1:44pm

Investigators with the Conway Police Department are asking for help identifying two women who allegedly shoplifted merchandise last week from Hobby Lobby on Oak Street in two separate incidents.

Police were dispatched to the store on Oct. 5 and made contact with an employee who stated that on Oct. 4, a woman wearing a black shirt and white shorts was observed placing $500 worth of scrapbooking items, stickers and jewelry into a large bag before leaving the store without paying for them.

Police reviewed video surveillance and reported the woman entered the store with no bag, then went to a scrapbooking aisle with a buggy containing two trash cans. The woman placed the items into the trash can before heading to the sticker aisle and then on to the jewelry aisle, each time placing additional items into the trash cans. The video then showed the woman leaving the store with a white bag that appeared full. As she was walking out of the store, the woman reportedly looked at the camera and smiled.

Police returned to the store on Oct. 8 following a call about another shoplifter who reportedly entered the store on Oct. 5 and stole 36 pieces of sterling silver jewelry valued at $600.   

The woman reportedly placed the merchandise underneath an infant carrier in the buggy and then took the merchandise into the store’s bathroom before leaving the store without making a purchase or replacing the items to the shelf.

Employees discovered the empty packages placed in the tank of a toilet.

The woman was described as in her late 20’s, with long black hair pulled into a bun.

Anyone with information on either suspect is asked to contact Conway police at 450-6120, or text your tip to CRIMES (274637) using the keyword Conway.

Second photo

I added a second photo of the first perp. It is hard to discern from the first photo. Hopefully the addition of the second photo will help someone clarify or recognize, if the first caused any doubt.

Does the pregnant perp have a black eye or is that just a distortion?
Who dresses like that to go shopping? Let alone while pregnant? Let's all chant Jerry Jerry Jerry!
