A shoplifter was apprehended after walking out of the Empire Kosher supermarket with over $200 worth of soap.
An Empire Kosher store worker alerted his manager after he noticed a shopper loading items into her purse and other bags, together they kept an eye on her and once she walked out of the store without bothering to pay first, they called Shomrim and began chasing her.
The shoplifter, a woman in her 30’s, was quickly cornered by a large number of Shomrim volunteers as she attempted to take refuge inside of a Jewish families home.
When police arrived the manager showed the officers the items she took, which included soaps and cleansers with a retail value of over $200, all stuffed in two different bags and even a wheeled cart. She was promptly placed under arrest.
