OCSO warn local businesses of shoplifting scheme
A Pensacola woman on probation in Escambia County for aggravated assault with a weapon is now being charged with grand theft by the Okaloosa County Sheriff’s Office (OCSO).
According to OCSO, 27-year old Lashamonique Moore of Muldoon Drive was seen taking clothes from a rack inside the Foot Locker at Destin Commons around 7:30 p.m. on Wednesday, Dec. 20th.
She then reportedly put the clothes on the floor while a second person grabbed the items, put them in sales bags from other stores, and left.
OCSO reports that Moore then tried to distract the Foot Locker employees by asking for many different pairs of shoes from the back of the store.
Initially, Moore denied the allegations but OCSO states that the incident was captured on surveillance video.
The total value of the items was placed at $1,300.00.
Moore is charged with grand theft and violation of probation.
The investigation is continuing.
Anyone with information on the scheme is asked to contact the OCSO at 850-651-7400 or Emerald Coast Crime Stoppers at 850-863-TIPS, EmeraldCoastCrimeStoppers.com, or by using the P3 Tips Mobile Application.
