Police Say Habitual Shoplifter Was Warned, Stole Anyway

A woman accused of being a habitual shoplifter at Kohl’s department store was arrested Saturday evening. An RPD officer was patrolling inside the store and approached 42-year-old Leah Allen, who he had arrested there before. He warned her not to steal anything and then went out to the parking lot to wait. When Allen came out the officer stopped her and determined that she had $1,290 worth of stolen makeup. She was arrested for grand theft.
