Patrick St. for a report of two females being observed by loss prevention officers stealing merchandise as small children with the two adults were also stealing merchandise. When officers arrived on scene, they made contact with two adult females, identified as Alicia Marie Hill and Melissa Hoult-Forrest, as they were exiting the store with several small children. Loss Prevention officers pointed out the group as the subjects observed on surveillance taking items from inside the store and concealing it as they were exiting the store. Sgt. Wayne Trapp and OFC John Hoxie were able to confirm that both Hill and Hoult-Forrest had numerous items concealed in their purses and diaper bags in an effort to steal the items. OFC Hoxie was also able to determine based on video surveillance and the observations of the Loss Prevention officers that two of the very small children with Ms. Hill had also attempted to steal items. Stolen items were also retrieved from the two small children.
