Northville MI April 1 2012 A Farmington Hills couple was arrested by Northville Township police last week on charges of shoplifting from Meijer, located at Eight Mile and Haggerty Roads.
The incidents occurred two days apart.
On March 22, a 25-year-old Farmington Hills man was stopped by Northville Township police after Meijer store security said he was seen shoplifting. According to the police report, the man left the store without paying for a Tigers hat and 12 packs of hockey trading cards. They are valued at $138.
When store security confronted him, he fled the store, according to the report. Township police caught up to him moments later on Haggerty Road at the Target parking lot across the street.
He told police he left his girlfriend at the store. The man was arrested and charged with larceny. According to the report, his car was turned over to his girlfriend. He is due to appear in the 35th District Court in Plymouth in April.
The following morning, the man’s 24-year-old girlfriend, also a Farmington Hills resident, was arrested on shoplifting charges from the same Meijer.
According to the police report, the woman filled a cart with $1,720 in merchandise, ranging from cosmetics to home goods. The woman left the store without paying for the items and was approached by store security.
The woman told police she was stealing items for her son, according to the police report. “However no products were observed in the cart to support that claim.”
The woman was arrested and posted a $300 bond. She is due to appear in the 35th District Court in April.
