Police took two women into custody Tuesday evening after store security spotted them shoplifting.
Security at a store in Shoppers Mall called police after the pair left the store, allegedly without paying for about $500 worth of merchandise. The women were detained by security and turned over to police, who arrested them. The merchandise was returned.
Police say that the two women — one 24 years old, the other 19 — are both from Brandon. They’ve been released from custody but are to appear in court on July 21, where they’ll face charges of theft under $5,000.
