An Ellicott City woman was arrested Saturday afternoon for trying to steal $195 worth of clothes from the Hecht Co. store in the Annapolis Mall, county police said yesterday.
A store security officer told police that he saw a woman carry 20 items of clothing into a dressing room shortly after 1:30 p.m. When the woman left the room, she had only 13 items of clothing and a bag that appeared to be filled with garments, the security officer told police.
The woman put the 13 items back on the rack and left the store. The officer stopped her and found four shirts and three pairs of pants in the bag, police said.
Jacqueline Lynn Grager, 27, of the 3100 block of Normandy Woods Drive was charged with misdemeanor theft, police said.
