Swapping Tags— Riverdale Woman Changes Prices to Cheat Orland Goodwill out of $3: Cops

The Riverdale woman complained that it was a "waste of time" and "stupid" for her to be detained over $3, police said.

The prices at the Orland Park Goodwill apparently weren't good enough for a Riverdale woman who tried swapping price tags in an attempt to save $3, police said.

Sindraella Corrica, 43, of 13917 S. Clark St. was charged with retail theft for the alleged smalltime swindle.

A security guard at the Goodwill reportedly spotted Corrica in the housewares section swapping the price tags off a decorative bowl and another item and switching them with the tags from less expensive merchandise. Corrica then went to the register with the newly priced items and several other purchases, police said.

When the security guard confronted her, "Corrica stated she did not know why she had swapped the tags," police said. "She attempted to state that she had spoken to a subject she believed to be an employee that had given her permission," but the security guard had not seen that happen.

Corrica then tried to minimize the situation, police said.

"Corrica continually downplayed the matter and complained that it was a 'waste of time' and 'stupid' that she was being detained," police said. "She also complained that she needed to make sure she got out of the office on time so as not to lose her ride home."

The security guard wanted Corrica to catch a case, police said, and this "combined with Corrica's attitude about the matter led" an officer to charge her.

If Corrica was able to successfully pull off her scheme she would have saved $3, police said.
