A couple of women in need of under garments and feminine hygiene products were only partially thwarted from shoplifting at a dollar store earlier this month.
It was an autumn night — not a summer’s eve — when a clerk at the Green Valley store spotted one of the women “stuff something down her pants,” according to a Pima County Sheriff’s Department report.
When the clerk confronted the women, one of whom had bad teeth, they denied taking any merchandise, the report stated.
After the clerk invited them to leave the store, one of the women who had been holding a bra and panties and threw the merchandise on the floor as she exited, the report stated. The women drove away in a “very beat up” sedan.
The clerk looked around the store after the women left and found a wrapper they had left behind.
According to the deputy who responded, the clerk “advised me that she was able to determine that the female had stuffed a feminine hygiene product called a douche down her pants.”
