Kent WA March 3 2012 Police arrested two women for investigation of third-degree theft after they allegedly put on new high heels, earrings and belts at Kmart and then left the store without paying for the items.
They even reportedly stole a lollipop that they gave to the 18-month-old child of one of the women, according to the police report.
The women carried $5,135 in cash on them after store security stopped the two at about 8:02 p.m. Feb. 23 outside the store at 24800 W. Valley Highway.
When officers asked the women the reason they took the items despite carrying so much cash, neither one answered. The women paid for several other items at the checkout stand before walking out of the store but made no attempt to pay for the items they had just put on.
Store security observed one of the women reportedly put on new high heels and left her old shoes behind. She also allegedly took earrings out of a box and put them on her ears. Both women were spotted putting new belts around their jeans.
The women were booked Feb. 23 into the city jail and released the next day. Bail was set at $500 each.
