Women charged in shoplifting

MOULTRIE — Moultrie police charged two housemates in one of two incidents of shoplifting reported over the weekend.

Kaylon Jane Sanders, 21, and Abby LeAnn Gay, 20, both of 610 Lane St., were charged with misdemeanor shoplifting Saturday at Walmart.

The Walmart loss prevention officer called police after detaining the two women. He told officers Sanders concealed several items in the lingerie department while Gay acted as lookout, then the two switched roles.

Recovered were $108 in clothing, $16 in jewelry and $36 worth of other merchandise, police said.

In the second shoplifting incident, a business at 1304 Veterans Parkway N. reported the theft of a half-gallon and a liter of Hennessey whiskey. Manager Sunni Patel said he was doing inventory Saturday when he noticed the liquor missing. He reviewed his video and saw four black males enter the store; one picked up both bottles and entered the beer cave. A second man entered the beer cave then left. The first then left the beer cave holding up his pants, and they all left the store.

Patel identified one of the men but said he didn't know the other three.
