A 60-year-old Lithonia woman has been accused of shoplifting $2,283 worth of women's underwear from the North Point Mall Macy's store.
An incident report by an Alpharetta police officer alleges the woman used a shoplifter's trick by bringing an empty Macy's bag into the North Point Mall store, only to bypass cash registers on her way out after filling it full of the underwear.
Approximately 100 pieces of clothing were found inside the Macy's bag and her purse when a Macy's loss prevention officer stopped her just outside the store.
Jacquelyn Jones Thome, 60, of Leslie Oaks Dr, Lithonia, was charged with felony shoplifting and taken to Fulton County Jail on Jan. 4. She was released on bond on Jan. 8.
