West Windsor Police: Trenton woman returns to same store she allegedly shoplifted at two weeks later


A Trenton woman returned to the same store she allegedly shoplifted at two weeks later, according to the West Windsor Police Department.

This time, store employees of Ulta Beauty immediately alerted police on July 17. They had recognized her from the earlier shoplifting incident because of her “red hair and distinctive tattoos,” police said.

When police arrived, the woman allegedly used a driver’s license belonging to someone else in an attempt to hide her identity, police said.

The woman, who was charged with hindering apprehension, was also found to have outstanding warrants from Ewing and Lawrence townships, Trenton and Pennsylvania.

The woman already faces charges of shoplifting after she allegedly shoplifted more than $8,000 worth of designer fragrances from the store with two accomplices on July 3.

She was processed at the West Windsor Police Department headquarters and taken to the Mercer County Correction Center.
