Woman Takes Limo To Go Shoplifting
A Minnesota woman is making national headlines after authorities says she took a limo to go on a shoplifting spree, then it called it back to take her pilfered goods home.
A woman is accused of taking a limousine to a Rochester business, shoplifting from the store, then calling the limo for a ride back home.
The limo driver was instrumental in helping police find the woman, who allegedly fought with store security before running away with about $300 in headbands and miscellaneous clothing items, said Lt. Jim Evenson.
The case began about 7:15 p.m. Monday, when officers were called to Scheels All Sports sporting goods store, 1220 12th St. SW, for a report of a shoplifter.
As police searched the area for the 22-year-old, the limo driver stopped and asked who they were looking for. When he heard the description, he told officers it might be the woman who’d just called him for a ride back to downtown Rochester.
Law enforcement followed him to the pick-up spot and arrested the woman, Evenson said.
The driver told police the suspect had called earlier to be picked up at the Kahler Grand Hotel and asked to be taken to Apache Mall. After the shoplifting incident, she apparently called for a ride back to the hotel, where she claimed to be staying.
According to the report, the woman is from Moorhead; she told police she was in town as a personal care assistant for someone seeking medical treatment in Rochester.
The Post-Bulletin typically doesn’t identify suspects until they’ve been charged.
