On Monday, Oct. 14, officers were called to Kohl’s Department Store at 5:56 p.m. for a report of shoplifting.
Officers met with loss prevention upon their arrival and learned that two juvenile females concealed merchandise and attempted to leave the store without purchasing the items.
The teenagers were stopped by loss prevention outside of the exit doors and brought to the security office. Loss prevention recovered the stolen items, identified as miscellaneous clothing items worth about $200.
Both admitted to the theft and were cooperative with loss prevention. Police called both girls’ parents and requested them to pick up their children. No criminal charges were pursued and the parents were left to deal with the situation.
On Thursday, Oct. 10, an officer was called to Cambridge Road for a report of credit card fraud.
Upon arriving, a woman told police she received a call from her credit card company that $2,500 in charges for online purchases had been made to her VISA card on September 30.
The woman said she did not make any purchases on that date. There were no suspects who could have made the charges, and the woman filed a police report for the fraud so the company could cover the charges and replace the card.
