Red haired lady targets clothing store
A deputy was dispatched to a Loganville Highway clothing store in response to a complaint by a sales associate.
The sales associate said a red haired lady comes into the store on Fridays with her two small children.
The children are allowed to make a mess in the store while the red haired lady tries on clothes.
The sales associate said sometimes the woman buys clothes, but often she does not. The associate said she has entered the dressing room several times after the red-haired woman has been there and found store security tags on top of the partition.
When asked why she had not called 911 before to report the shoplifting, the associate said it was against store policy to prosecute shoplifters.
The associate requested that a deputy occasionally walk through the store on Friday evenings.
