Woman steals from adult entertainment store | BLOTTER

The suspect reportedly stole pheromone spray, prostate gel and a corset.

The following information was compiled from Renton Police Department incident reports.

An employee from an adult entertainment store on Rainier Avenue South reported the store was shoplifted on Nov. 6.

A woman came into the store and was “acting strange,” according to an employee. She talked to the employee about getting a free item using her rewards account. She provided him with her name and email address.

She walked up to a shelf and stole a $39.50 pheromone spray, and continued to walk around the store for about 30 to 40 more minutes. The employee went up to her to ask if she needed help, when he noticed an empty package of prostate gel, valued at $16.50.

The woman asked about corsets, so the employee showed her where they were. A few minutes later, she came up to the front counter to get her free rewards program gift. Another employee said out loud that someone stole a corset, valued at $49.

Right as the other employee said that, the woman grabbed her purse and walked out of the store. She was holding one side of her jacket against her body. According to the reporting employee, it was as if she concealed the corset inside her jacket.

The employee was able to find the woman on Facebook, and shared a screenshot of her profile photo to the police. Officers were unable to find any local records on the woman.

There is no further information at this time.

RESIDENTIAL BURGLARY: On Nov. 6, officers were dispatched to reports of a residential burglary that was occurring on Southeast 170th Street.

Officers noted several doors inside the house were open and that it appeared the suspect spent most of the time in the master bedroom. The suspect appeared to have rummaged through the furniture and the walk-in closet.

Officers also noticed damage to the side door inside the attached garage. The report stated it seemed as if the side door was kicked in.

The homeowner said she left in the morning and came back around 3:30 p.m., when she saw a suspicious vehicle parked across from her house. Police later determined the vehicle was stolen.

The homeowner said she opened the garage door and saw both doors inside the garage were opened.

She reported her Macbook Air and Burberry watch were stolen. The estimated value of the stolen items and property damage is approximately $2,650.

There is no suspect information at this time.

STOLEN MACY’S CREDIT CARD: A woman contacted police to report fraudulent credit card activity Nov. 6.

She showed officers receipts of three separate transactions in her Macy’s credit card, with charges for $38.91, $376.73 and $565.40.

She said she did not have a physical Macy’s card so she’s unsure how the suspect(s) got her information. She also said they could have taken the card from the mail or from her son’s wallet, which was stolen in February and had a card inside.

There is no further information on this case.

BREAK IN: A woman reported her car was broken into Nov. 4 when she parked it at the Lindbergh High School parking lot during a soccer game.

She said the front drivers side window was smashed. A handbag, battery pack, textbooks and stationary were stolen.

The car alarm was not set off since the suspect(s) did not attempt to open the door.

There is no suspect information at this time.
