SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (KELO AM) - A Tea woman was arrested for shoplifting yesterday in the Kohl’s parking lot and Sioux Falls police seized over $2000 worth of stolen clothing.
Officer Sam Clemens says 30-year-old Katie Marie Smit is accused of taking half her loot from Kohls. Clemens says a Kohl's loss prevention officer recognized Smit as a past offender. He watched as she allegedly put clothing into a bag.
Clemens says the loss prevention officer called police and as they arrived Smit was going to her car with merchandise she didn't pay for.
Police found thousands of dollars worth of clothing taken from other Sioux Falls stores in her car.
Smit is charged with grand theft and possession of stolen property.
