Two sisters from West Virginia reportedly told Police they were stealing for the fun of it after they were arrested Wednesday afternoon at Tanger Outlets. Gabrielle E. Dean, 24, and Michaelann F.

Police were given permission to search the vehicle and said they found 23 items valued at $1,056 that had been stolen from several stores. Gabrielle Dean was caught after she ran out of American Eagle.

Lewisville, TX: Teens admit to longtime theft scheme at Ulta Beauty
Anytime friends Jamie Oh and Brenda Salazar wanted new makeup, they would make their way to a local beauty supply store and steal what they desired. This went on for more than a year until the two were arrested for organized retail theft March 5. "They were seen on the surveillance footage walking around, taking turns as a look out in order not to get caught by employees concealing merchandise," said Lewisville police officer Codie Bannister. "They also admitted that every couple weeks they would go to the Ulta store to steal merchandise. The girls said they would then 'barter items among each other.'" Their one-day total of stolen merchandise was more than $500, but there was no way to know the value of the rest of their haul both admitted to stealing over the course of the year. Oh and Salazar were arrested for organized retail theft.
