Lapeer Road Rite Aid site of repeat retail fraud

BURTON — On Sept. 7 at 7:41 p.m., the Lapeer Road Rite Aid’s store manager observed a white female trying to leave the drug store with a bag full of merchandise without paying. According to the store manager, she’d seen the woman come in two weeks ago and leave without paying for merchandise. The store manager told the woman to stop, but the woman ran for the door and into the parking lot. She got into the passenger side of a gray S-10 truck but the driver, a heavy-set white male with a beard, told her to get out. The suspect ran for Lapeer Road with the store manager chasing after her while two boxed electric razors fell out of the woman’s bag. The suspect ran to Smoker’s Palace where she was picked up by the truck and took off with an estimated $200 worth of merchandise. The woman is described as 5’6” with a slim build, dark hair and toothless. After a check of the plates, the car was discovered stolen and the case was turned over to the Detective Bureau.— Compiled by Amanda Durish
