Sandusky Register Staff • Aug 27, 2014 at 2:38 PM

Officers charged both Kimberly S. Cross, 39, 900 block W. Adams St.; and Tara L. Thatcher, 38, 2200 block Forest Drive, with theft, receiving stolen property and possessing criminal tools.

Among the items both women reportedly took without paying:

• Several party supplies from the Party Place at 4903 Milan Road.

• 10 candles, a total value ranging from $200 to $300, from Pat Catan’s at 904 E. Perkins Ave.

• Five pairs of pants, a sweatshirt, jacket and bag from the Sandusky Mall.

• Various purses.

A Party Place employee allegedly saw both women attempting to steal various items. When the employee questioned them, the two women left the store.

Officers then began searching for them. A police supervisor found their car in the parking lot of ABC Warehouse.

A short while later, a third woman picked up Cross and Thatcher. That’s when officers swarmed her car and arrested both women.
