CVS manager calls police after spotting woman attempting to steal alcohol
The Saline Police Department arrested two Wayne residents Monday following an attempted retail fraud at a CVS pharmacy, according to The Saline Reporter.
The article said the two, Stephen Michael Foreman, 26, and Sharon Marie Velasquez, have since been linked to other crimes in nearby areas including Northville, Wayne and Livonia.
The manager of the CVS, located at 413 E. Michigan Ave., contacted police after spotting the woman trying to walk out with two black bags full of bottles of alcohol. Police reports say the woman set off the store alarm as she tried to leave and returned to set the bags down and went back to her car.
Officer Mark Jensen, who was nearby, responded to the call and asked Velasquez to pull over where he discovered the car had been stolen out of Wayne. Police also found a purse and several wallets in the car.
Both suspects are being held at the Washtenaw County Jail.
