Shoplifting sisters sought after striking 47 Targets in greater Atlanta|
Authorities are closing in on two sisters suspected of nearly 50 separate
shoplifting incidents at various branches of a superstore chain. Sheneka Willis,
22, and her sister, Brittany Willis, have reportedly accumulated more than
$24,000 in merchandise since May 1, 2014. Twenty-two of the 47 shoplifting
incidents have totaled felony amounts - more than $500 - including the most
recent theft from the Cumming store. The south Atlanta residents are wanted in
multiple jurisdictions across the north-metro Atlanta area, including Forsyth
and Fulton counties, said Bryan Zimbardi, spokesman for the Cumming police.
During one attempt the women supposedly used pepper spray on a loss-prevention
officer, although nothing in the report stated they had a gun or posed a threat
to the public.
