On June 11, the law enforcement agency posted surveillance photos of a woman suspected of stealing more than $500 worth of sunglasses from the same store.

"These people stealing from the mall and anywhere else are causing the merchants to raise all the prices to recover their cost for these items," Officer Todd Rankin said, "so we all suffer the higher prices."
