Two suspects are in custody at the Sacramento County Jail on multiple charges after an attempted shoplifting incident at an Elk Grove retailer.

On Sunday, November 6, 29-year-old Dorthy Richards of Sacramento was allegedly observed trying to steal merchandise from the Burlington Coat Factory store on East Stockton Boulevard. As Richards approached the exit, she discarded all of the items before leaving the store. 

Elk Grove Police officers responded to the location and contacted Richards. After being detained, a records check revealed that Richards had active warrants out for her arrest and was in possession of a pair of needle-nose pliers.
