Theft From Thrift Store
April 10th, 2018 - A sixty eight year old St. Thomas woman has been charged for
stealing from the Salvation Army Thrift Store on Edward Street. The woman was recorded
on video surveillance multiple times taking items from the donation area located
just outside the rear doors of the store. The woman was recognized and identified
by staff who believe the woman steals from the donation bins and then sells the
items at yard sales. The woman now stands accused of one count of Theft Under $5000
and was released on an Appearance Notice for Court. Once an item has been placed
outside a thrift store in a marked donation area, the item is considered donated
and automatically becomes the property of the store. It is illegal to remove any
donated items and removing them constitutes theft.
A twenty six year old female was arrested on a warrant last night around 11:30 p.m.
on Talbot Street. The woman was wanted for one count of Theft Under $5000 from an
incident involving a stolen tablet back on April 1st and two additional counts of
Breach of Probation. She was taken into custody and later released on a Promise
To Appear In Court
