17-year-old charged with shoplifting at 2 stores

MOULTRIE — A Moultrie teenager was charged Friday in two shoplifting cases after a store clerk approached the girl about a suspected theft of underwear.

Latrice C. Waldon, 17, 410 Seventh St. N.W., was charged with two counts of theft by shoplifting.

Waldon was arrested after an employee at It’s Fashion, 629 Veterans Parkway, approached her because she suspected Waldon had removed price tags from panties. When asked to empty her pockets and open a book bag, the employee reported, Waldon pulled jewelry with plastic tags attached from a sweater pocket. The book bag contained clothing, candy and pacifiers.

The employee called Walmart, 641 Veterans Parkway S., because she suspected some of the merchandise had been stolen from that store.

After placing Waldon in a patrol car, police said, an officer noticed a plastic tag on her boots and asked her to take them off. Inside the boots  were gum and panties.

At the jail, a female jailer who searched Waldon found three pairs of panties, two of which were concealed in her bra and one in a pocket, police said. The value of merchandise Waldon allegedly concealed at It’s Fashion is $7, and the stolen Walmart merchandise was valued at $173.
