A West Virginia woman is accused of trying to shoplift $634 worth of clothing and shoes from Kohl’s department store in Robinson Crossroads.
Robinson police have charged Barbara Little, 38, of Follansbee, WV with retail theft and receiving stolen property.
A loss prevention officer told officers that Little was seen on surveillance cameras taking an item from her shopping cart and putting it in her bag on Aug. 19.
Police said Little appeared nervous and looked around as she did it, but then began taking several items as she progressed through the store. Police said she left the store and was stopped in the parking lot. Police said Little was adamant that she was just going out to make a phone call and wasn’t stealing.
Police said because she was from out of state and considered a flight risk, she was taken to Allegheny County Jail for arraignment.
Robinson police also responded to the following incidents. Each item is a reflection of police records and does not indicate guilt or a conviction.
Attempted criminal possession of firearm
A Pittsburgh man is charged with attempting an illegal sale or transfer of a firearm and making unsworn falsification to authorities.
Police received information on Aug. 20 that Duvaughn Hester, 21, of Sheraden, tried to purchase a 12-gauge shotgun at Dick’s Sporting Goods in November though he isn’t allowed to possess a firearm due to a permanent PFA that was issued against him.
Police said a background check showed Hester is prohibited from acquiring a gun. Police said he indicated on an ATF form that he is permitted.
