An unusual scene unfolded at a Heartland K-Mart store, as an employee chased a shoplifter out of the store, she jumped into a waiting car and made her getaway.
It happened on Monday, December 29th at the 134th and West Maple K-Mart.
According to the police report, at about 10am, a woman with a fully loaded shopping cart made a mad dash through the security sensors and doors.
An employee spotted her and gave chase.
Once outside in the parking lot the woman stopped next to a car, opened a back door and started throwing merchandise into the back seat.
The employee was yelling at her to stop, and as he neared the woman she pushed the cart away, got in the passenger's seat and the car sped away.
