Woman Dragged LP Associate with Car at Suburban Grocery Store

A 52-year-old woman was charged with dragging a loss prevention associate with her car after she was caught shoplifting at a grocery store earlier this year in west suburban Aurora, Illinois. About 6:15 p.m. Feb. 19, the LP associate, a 24-year-old woman, caught Lori R. Federman stealing meat and vitamins from the Jewel-Osco at 1952 W. Galena Blvd, according to Aurora police. When the guard confronted her, Federman ran to her car and the woman gave chase. After getting into the car, Federman grabbed the associate by her collar, pulled her partially into the car and drove off, police said. Federman eventually let her go before speeding out of the parking lot. The associate was treated at the scene for minor injuries, police said. Detectives used several forensic items to identify Federman as the suspect, police said. Federman, of Montgomery, turned herself over to police and she was charged with aggravated battery and retail theft, police said.   [Source: NBC5 News]
