Black Friday Gone Wrong In Eaton County

(WLNS) – This puts a very different spin on “Black Friday” shopping.

Eaton County Sheriff’s deputies tell 6 News that on Friday night they responded to a call that a retail fraud was in progress at a Delta Township retailer.

They were told that a female suspect that had “pushed out” a cart full of merchandise earlier in the week was back filling up another shopping cart.

According to investigators the suspect took over two hours selecting merchandise then “pushed out” the cart without paying. Deputies followed her to her car where she was arrested without incident. She was caught with $3224.26 worth of merchandise that she had just taken.

A search of her car revealed $1406.23 worth of merchandise reportedly stolen from another Delta Township retailer.

The 35-year-old Mason resident is currently held in the Eaton County jail. Deputies say the suspect has a lengthy history of retail fraud and is on probation for Felony Retail Fraud.
