An alleged shoplifter told officers to let her go because her granddaughter was with her.

On Oct. 29, Officer Mitchell Sellers responded to a woman who was confronted for shoplifting. Andrea Buckhorn said she needed to be released because she had her granddaughter in the car. She pointed Sellers to her car, and he found it to be unoccupied. Buckhorn gave the officer her granddaughter’s description, but employees were unable to see her in the store. Video footage showed no one leaving the vehicle except for Buckhorn. The woman called her mother, and officers were told the granddaughter was at home with her. Employees said Buckhorn concealed a pack of batteries on her person before she tried leaving the store. Buckhorn was booked on charges of obstruction, petit larceny, and a warrant.
