This person has been shoplifting from all other retail stores as well. I'm employed with Target and have dealt with her she was hostile and threatened to "poke my eye out." People like her don't deserve to be out in the public she never seems to change her ways. If anything the employee responsible for bringing her down did the city a favor! Good work to whoever the lpo was it's obvious they know what they are doing
