White, blond woman wearing blue sparkly shirt sought by the law for possible Walmart larceny

posted by Billie Owens in batavia, crime.

Law enforcement is scouring the vicinity of Walmart following a reported larceny at that store. The subject of the search is a blond, white female, about 25 years old, wearing a "blue sparkly" shirt. She was seen within the last 15 minutes trying to get into a 2007 white Saturn Vue, but when she realized she was being pursued, she fled on foot. She was last spotted behind Office Max. (The vehicle is described by the manufacturer, now Chevrolet, as a compact SUV crossover.)

UPDATE 12:16 p.m.: Officers believe they have located the suspect at her residence in Le Roy. (The vehicle, driven by a possible accomplice, is registered to a person in Le Roy, too.) The landlord told officers that the tenant entered the dwelling and was not seen leaving, but she's allegedly not answering the door. "We'll get a warrant," one officer tells another.

UPDATE 12:32 p.m.: The suspect is in custody.

Why people try to shop lift form Walmart and K Mart is a mystery to me. Both have the toughest loss prevention system and a policy of zero tolerance if caught.

Rumor has it that this began as a masked robbery, but she dropped her mask on the way out of the store, described only as a bright yellow mask with a goofy smile. Police would not disclose the stolen items but did speculate that they were likely made in China, as was the sparkly shirt. The most surprising aspect of this story is that the suspect was from LeRoy. When she was taken into custody, she was overheard mumbling something about wishing she had used layaway. (allegedly)

"Trick-or-treat-helpee-selfee." Never too early. (Rolling eyes.)

Kmart has *free* layaway, but you have to PAY for it before you leave the store. Imagine that?

If she was wearing a "sparkly" shirt, can she be charged with shoplifting while fabulous?

And the Sheriff's Office is less than 2 minutes away. That's the part that always gets me.
