Shoplifting from Kohl's
Two women were arrested in seperate incidents of retail fraud at Kohl's Department Store this week, according to Diamond.
About $400-$500 worth of merchandise was taken during the most recent incident, Aug. 28 at about 2 p.m., when a loss prevention officer told police that they had seen a shopper intentionally taking tags off of clothing and accessories.
