GAINES TOWNSHIP, Mich. (WZZM)- You could call her the Champagne Shoplifter; cameras have caught a brazen thief stealing a bottle of bubbly and much more from stores in Gaines Township.
"I hope someone recognizes the picture and keeps an eye out for the vehicle -- and her -- and makes a call," says Rochelle Arnold, owner of Marco's Hair Salon, whose store was hit by the bubbly bandit Tuesday afternoon. "She came in and announced she was going to buy a gift card, but she needed a few minutes to eat her hot dogs."
Arnold says it was a busy day. The woman started looking around and stole items off the shelf. She was also able to nab Arnold's wallet, which contained $300.
"She managed to get up to the counter, reach over the desk, take the wallet out of my purse, empty the money, put my wallet back in. All within a 13-second time frame," explains Arnold.
