Shoplifter Trashes Convenience Store


A woman entered a Shell convenience store in Jacksonville, Florida, stuffed $11 worth of candy bars in her pocket, and vandalized the store when confronted about the theft.

After the woman refused to give the candy back – or pay for it – the owner locked the door to prevent her from getting away until police could get there.

The candy thief then proceeded to calmly trash the entire store, knocking items off the shelf, and flinging bottles to the floor, shattering them one by one.

Finally, after 10 minutes, the police had still not arrived, the owner unlocked the door, as the damage the woman was causing had far exceeded the value of the stolen candy bars.

The incident happened in March, but the surveillance video has just recently been released, as police have still not been able to identify the woman.

The sheriff’s office released the video, along with the following statement asking for help in locating the suspect.  There is a $3,000 reward being offered.

Anyone with any information reference the identity of this suspect is asked to contact the Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office at 904-630-0500 or email us at [email protected] To remain anonymous and receive a possible reward up to $3,000 contact Crime Stoppers at 1-866-845-TIPS.
