What is it with people coming from Rochester and Buffalo to shoplift in Batavia?! Apparently they don't read The Batavian before coming out here to do so!
Kudos to Walmart, Target and Kmart "loss prevention" crews and to our local Sheriffs Department, State Troopers and Batavia police department for finding, catching and arresting with these people!!
Maybe they have the impression that we are backwater hicks Sam and that they can get away with more here than in their respective cities.
You would think she was shoplifting to get money to score...surprising she already had some on her.
It's because Kmart, Walmart and Target are near the thruway, quick in, quick out, and chances are no one local would recognise you
