    I shopped for products at this Target store. The store detectives were evident, and I felt like a lot of eyes were on me. I paid for my purchases. However, this fat lady got away with stealing valuable headphones. Maybe if the store detectives did not target the wrong people they’d have caught this woman red handed. I had to struggle with a big box of cat litter cause I was unable to find a clerk to help me. Oh well, I continue shopping at Target and prefer it to WalMart. Hope they catch this thief.

      I see what you’re sayin, but who cares if they’re shadowing you throughout your whole shopping trip? You’re not doing anything wrong so who cares? They need to profile.

    If overcrowding in detention facilities is a problem now, wait til she is taking up space. Her cell mate might fall into orbit.

    “190 – 200 pounts”????? Is she hiding the 200 pound juvenile under her blouse? If I were the cops, I’d set up a surveillance at the chocolate fountain at Hometown Buffet.

      Ha ha Otto, 300-400 more like it..and a gold Lincoln navigator? SMH.
      Say, do they really have a chocolate fountain at Hometown? Haven’t been there lately.

      • February 2, 2013 at 8:51 am

        Sik- I believe it’s actually at Golden Corral….I’m not sure where the nearest one is, but I’m sure she knows. I think I’ve been to Hometown once, but too many people like her there. Yeah, the navigator is only fitting.

          Yeah,I thought it was at Golden Corral which is a much better establishment than Hometown and closest one I think is out near San Berdoo,;good thing too long a drive or I would be looking like that.

          • February 2, 2013 at 3:59 pm

            HA…yeah, for sure. I bet she has the bucks (and the hunger) to gas up that navigator and motor out there for that glorious fountain of chocolate.

    Maybe she was coerced to do that by her “pimp”. I don’t think it was her own idea. Who was driving the car? she wasn’t the driver, she would it have hard time positioning herself between the driving wheel. A gold Lincoln Navigator? It reminds me the 60’s lots of “pimps”.

    If the law would like to find this criminal, I suggest setting up stings at every all you can eat buffet in town. Just a hunch.

    If you look closely her belt size says “Equator”

    Deputies can also try asking DMV for help. With a picture this clear all they have to do is magnify a few X’s and do a face match from records also while they are at it cross match it to any vehicles she may own. A gold Lincoln Navigator maybe?

    I bet she’s a light eater. As soon as it gets light, she starts eating.

      Or, she’s on a seafood diet; she sees food and eats it.

    They are doing everything necessary to try to clean up Lancaster. Why should shoplifters be any different? Point is it will be on their record and catching can deter them from future crimes. I don’t think much is going into trying to catch them hince the reason for this post asking us for our help in catching.

    Why is this person of more interest than any other shoplifter? Sheriff detectives are now spending valuable time seeking shoplifters???

      It’s a gateway crime start with shoplifting step up to burglarize your home or rob you on the street. That’s why they focus on the small stuff!!!

        Focus on small stuff or steal the old lady shoppers purse from the shopping cart when the kid distracts her.

    She must weigh closer to 300 lbs, if she is really 5’8″, and that large. I know they say that cameras make you look fatter, but in her case, really? I guess she had plenty of places on her body to hide the “booty”.

      I agree. If she weighs 180-200, I weigh 110. bahahahahahh

    gold Lincoln Navigator???? I drive a 1984 car… I wish I was as rich as her… maybe she is one of those people addicted to shoplifting and does not need the money.. Naa probably not.. High end headphones must mean something like “Beats By Dr.DRE”, not the $20 headphones I am wearing now.

    Seems odd theAVtimes would add this story to its site.. makes it seem like the headphone bandit is the worst of our problems in the AV and deserves the attention. I personally think we have much more pressing issues then this..

    But she did break the law.. probably will get 30 days in jail.. but due to overcrowding people just do %10 of their sentences.. do the math.

      I love this story because it shows that all kinds of people are thieves. Also, you can only please some of the people some of the time!
      She probably didn’t have money for the purchase due to a high car lease payment.
      Or…..she is stealing to sell on ebay or some place.

      • Martha

        shes probably another welfare recipient looking to make some extra cash selling these. I wouldnt be surprised if she was out there selling them on the street or yes ebay under a different alias of course

          And here goes the ebay bashing again…..You folks do know that ebay works with law enforcement to keep the level of stolen goods being sold fairly low right? More likely she’s selling these on Craigslist….now there’s a SCARY site! Now let the down thumbing begin…

    Lady on the phone says “yeah im picking up a couple of headphones, which ones you want?”

    Lancaster deputies say, “hey lady why dont you pay for them?

    I agree Lancaster deputies, why doesnt she pay for them?
