Two women arrested in Mebane outlets theft

Posted July 9, 2013

— Two women were arrested in the parking lot of the Tanger Outlets in Mebane Saturday after police found stolen merchandise in their possession.

Employees of the outlet mall's Sunglass Hut called police to report a theft, and police identified the women before they left the property.

The first, Karyta Rashown Kittrell, 32, of 1311 Wendell Ave. in High Point, was arrested in the company of two juveniles. Mebane police said they believe the two children belong to the second suspect, Sheconda Olympia Douglas, 31, of 409 Rollingwood Road in Jamestown.

Both women were being held in Alamance County Jail on $15,000 secured bond. They face one charge apiece of felony larceny and contributing to the delinquency of a minor.

Douglas, who was identified on video surveillance and found in a car in the parking lot, faces an additional charge of  resisting arrest.

    as Keanu Reeves said in one of his earlier movies " you need a license to drive a car or to catch a fish, but any ______ can be a parent" no more truthful words have ever been spoken

    My friends sister did this when I was in Middle School. She would take her newborn to Wal-Mart with the stroller, stuff it full of stolen items, and then return the merchandise for cash (back before you had to have a receipt to get cash-money for something you returned.) She's probably the reason they changed that policy. It's sad.

    Unfortunately, they do learn by example!

    If it was just the adults doing the shoplifting, then no it would NOT be news, but since the kids had the bag and the adults were placing items in the bags, it becamse news in the Greensboro area. It was also news because they were caught.
