Police Charge 5 Women in Shoplifting Plot

Authorities in Kentucky have charged 5 Illinois women in a $25,000 shoplifting scheme they say stretches from Illinois to Georgia.

Each woman is charged with offenses including engaging in organized crime, news outlets report. The women were arrested early Tuesday after two of them stole more than $1,500 worth of items from a local Kroger, Elizabethtown police said.

A security guard tried to stop the women, who then fled into an awaiting van that had a temporary Illinois license plate, police said. The van was stopped nearby and officers said it was filled with stolen merchandise including beauty products, makeup and “high value” merchandise. Additionally, police said they found records that indicated two 300-pound packages of suspected stolen property had been shipped to Atlanta from Illinois… NBC5 Chicago
