Owner spots customer

‘holding his jeans’

The owner of the Kingsland Lounge Discount Beverage, in Kingsland Plaza, noticed a customer walking up an aisle and holding his jeans in an unusual manner on April 23, according to a sheriff’s report.

The owner confronted the bearded man by lifting up his shirt and discovered a Patron Tequila bottle halfway down the shopper’s pants. When he attempted to pull the 750-milliliter bottle out, the suspect ran behind the building and into the woods.

The bottle of alcohol was valued at $49.99.

Meats found in

woman’s underwear, bra

On April 24, a loss prevention employee with the Walmart Supercenter saw a customer driving a handicapped cart, which had a large amount of frozen meat in it, according to a sheriff’s report.

After leaving the frozen food section, she drove over to the boy’s section, where she covered the meat with some clothing and then proceeded to the cosmetics department. Once she had selected some items, she drove to the men’s section, where she was seen putting items underneath her clothes, according to a sheriff’s report.

She passed all points of sale and headed out the door, but was stopped by the employee. Once in the loss prevention office, $32 worth of meat was found in the woman’s underpants and bra.

The other items, valued at $66., were returned to the store.

Gertrude Brenda Fae Stanley, 47, of Gainesville, was arrested and charged with petty retail theft and was taken to the Marion County Jail.

Women attempt

to make ‘returns’

Two women walked into the Walmart Supercenter on April 26 and told the “door greeter” that they had a return to make and needed a ticket. Shortly afterward one of the shopper’s returned to the door and told the employee she had lost the ticket and needed another one, according to a sheriff’s report.

After giving her another one, the greeter alerted the loss prevention employee of the incident.

The customers reportedly began selecting merchandise in the store. With a return voucher in hand, one woman returned three toys, which were valued at $63, while the other shopper returned two DVDs worth $106. Before they could leave the store with the money, the employee asked them to come to the loss prevention office.

Debbie Agosto, 43, of Lawrence, Mass., was arrested and charged with petty retail theft and was taken to the Marion County Jail. Luz M. Allende Aviles, 46, of Ocala, was arrested and charged with petty retail theft and was issued a notice to appear.
