Menlo Woman Arrested for Shoplifting

A Menlo woman was arrested over the weekend for shoplifting at Wal-Mart after she allegedly switched prices on a small kitchen appliance and a cat-dish.

Chattooga County Sheriff’s Deputies were summoned to Wal-Mart in reference to a shoplifter that was in the parking lot.  When the responding deputy arrived they spoke to a Wal-Mart employee who said that a female had changed the label on a Kitchen Aid food chopper so it would scan at a lower price. She further advised that the female had also held a small cat-dish label over a larger feeder so it would scan at a lower price. These two items totaled $56.85.

The incident was caught on video by Wal-Mart surveillance.

Twenty-seven-year-old Hannah Elrod of an Edison Street, Menlo address was arrested on charges of theft by shoplifting and transported to the Chattooga County Jail on Sunday.
