Harrington Woman Arrested for Shoplifting at Family Dollar

Updated:

HARRINGTON, Del.- Authorities say a Harrington woman was arrested Friday for allegedly shoplifting from the Family Dollar store in the Midway Shopping Center.

Harrington police said officers were called to the store shortly after 7 p.m. Store employees reportedly told officers that a white female came into the store, removed merchandise and subsequently left without paying.

Police said that following the incident, the suspect, 40-year-old Jennifer L. Bruce, left the store, got into a vehicle and fled the scene. Police said the employees were able to obtain a license plate number for the vehicle, which led officers to Bruce's home on the 1500 block of Madison Avenue.

Police said they took Bruce into custody and transported her to Family Dollar, where employees were able to positively identify her as the suspect. Bruce was then transported to the Harrington Police Department for processing.

Bruce was issued a criminal summons for shoplifting under $1,500 and was released pending a future court appearance.
