A 21-year-old Columbus woman is facing theft charges after police said they recovered more than $2,000 worth of suspected stolen merchandise from the vehicle she was driving.
Satia Dunson, of Columbus, is charged with theft and possession of criminal tools and has pleaded not guilty to the charges.
German Twp. Police spotted Dunson’s vehicle Nov. 8 and noticed she had a warrant for larceny out of Huber Heights.
Dunson was pulled over in the area of the Dunham Sports, 1600 Upper Valley Pike, where she was taken into custody.
Police said they “noticed a large amount of clothing that was inside the vehicle that had security tags on them, still had the hangars on them.”
“It was obvious they had been out shoplifting,” said Lt. Russell Garman with the German Twp. Police Department.
Dunson’s trial is scheduled for January.
