Denver Shoplifting Theft Attorney: Woman Steals Electronics by Hiding Them in Skirt

Posted by Unknown | Feb 10, 2016 | 0 Comments

It seems long skirts are the key to getting away with shoplifting. I'm concluding this based on two shoplifting stories I read that are nearly identical. Do you remember reading one of our blogs about a woman who managed to fit a TV under her skirt and walk out of the store with it? To my surprise, I found another story that is almost just like that one. According to the news story, another woman was allegedly caught on a surveillance camera stuffing $1,000 worth of electronics up her long skirt. That was the first time. The second time, the same woman was seen on the camera in a Radio Shack stuffing $400 worth of stuff up her skirt. Somehow, she managed to get away with this crime both times. Though she may be creative, if caught and identified in Colorado, she would be charged with shoplifting Theft. If you've been charged or accused of shoplifting Theft anywhere in Colorado, you need a shoplifting Theft attorney to defend you today.
