Trio arrested for shoplifting

RICHMOND — Three alleged shoplifters were arrested Sunday after police say they stole more than $1,100 worth of items from Meijer.

“Employees reported that the trio was cutting open packages, concealing the merchandise, and then taking the items to a car in the parking lot,” said Chief Larry Brock of Richmond Police.

Arrested were Herschell Hall, 46, of Gray, Ky., Debra S. Smith, 37, Corbin, and Jennie R. Crosslin, 36, Corbin.  

Officers recovered numerous items of stolen property from the suspects as well as from the vehicle in the parking lot. The stolen items consisted of watches, pocket knives, clothing, fishing lures and shoes, Brock said.

They all were charged with theft by unlawful taking over $500, a Class D felony. Smith and Crosslin also were charged with possession of drug paraphernalia after razor blades, bent spoons with suspected drug residue, and a syringe were found on their persons, the chief said.

They were lodged in the Madison County Detention Center, all with $2,500 bonds, according to the jail’s website. Crosslin was released Monday. Smith and Hall were still being held as of Tuesday afternoon.
