EAGLE, Colorado – Security detained two females suspected of shoplifting at City Market in Eagle Jan. 3.

A security guard told police he witnessed the suspects take items out of wrappers, go the bathroom, come out without the items in hand and then try to leave the store.

The 21-year-old woman began crying and complaining of back pain as she was searched and questioned by the officers, who then called an ambulance.

Police found a toothbrush and makeup in the woman’s purse, which were later admitted to be stolen. The woman said it was a “dumb idea.” The juvenile with the woman said it was her idea to steal the toothbrush.

Officers discovered the two females were cousins and living together when they contacted the juvenile’s mom to pick her up.
