The pair were observed by Kohl's loss prevention officers concealing clothing, shoes and a Fitbit watch in large purses and exiting the store, deputies alleged.
A Geneva woman and 16-year-old from Waterloo were arrested Saturday afternoon after Ontario County sheriff’s deputies say they were caught trying to shoplift $587.98 in items from Kohl’s in Victor.
Stephanie M. Corrigan, 27, of 289 William St. in Geneva, and the juvenile, whom the Daily Messenger is not naming because of her age, were each charged with misdemeanor petit larceny and possession of burglar tools in connection with the incident, which took place just after 2 p.m. Corrigan also was charged with endangering the welfare of a child.
The pair were observed by Kohl’s loss prevention officers concealing clothing, shoes and a Fitbit watch in large purses and exiting the store, deputies alleged. The pair also were found with tools used to remove security features from the items, deputies reported.
Both were released and scheduled to reappear in Victor Town Court at a later date to answer the charges.
