John Murphy, 49, of Louisville, entered two Target stores, one in St. Matthews and one in Springhurst, on four occasions from April 4 to May 24 and stole roughly $7,900 of merchandise.

Nashville, TN: Lifetime ban doesn't deter Cross Dressing shoplifter from stealing over $5,000 from Victoria's Secret and Dillards
A cross-dressing shoplifter with a lifetime ban at area malls has been arrested for theft again. Officials with Metro Nashville Police said Chimayne Talley typically dresses as a female when attempting to steal clothes from Nashville stores. Most recently, he's alleged to have stolen more than $5,000 worth of merchandise from Victoria's Secret and Dillard's in late August. Detectives said Talley even posted a photo of the stolen merchandise to his Facebook page to advertise a yard sale for the items. The 22-year-old suspect has been banned from both the Opry Mills Mall and Green Hills Mall because of his lengthy history of theft. The lifetime ban at Opry Mills took effect in 2013.

Rock Hill, SC: Police spent 9 hours with a Shoplifter who refused to say where her 2 yr old son was
Rock Hill police officers spent nine hours trying to locate the son of a woman they charged with shoplifting, who offered to tell them where he was only if they let her go. Shelby Estes, 22, was walking through Walmart on Sunday, taking stickers off items valued at 23 cents and putting them on other items, including children's clothing and shoes, underwear and shaving razors. Officers arrested her and placed her in a patrol car. Estes continued to ask to use her cell phone and "did not want officers searching her purse," police said. Inside Estes' purse, officers found .99 grams of marijuana in a clear plastic bag and two yellow pills. While Estes was in the Rock Hill city jail, her family called the police department and asked where her 2-year-old son was, police said. Estes would not tell officers where her son was or who had him.
