Woman Found with Almost $700 in Stolen Merchandise: Blotter

A Chicago woman is facing theft charges after she was found with unpaid coats and makeup worth close to $700, police said.

A Chicago woman was accused of stealing makeup and coats worth about $700, according to an Orland Park Police report.

Martha A. Reyes, 27, of the 6500 block of South Komensky Avenue in Chicago, was charged with theft and retail theft over $300.

On Nov. 15, the Orland Park Police Department was called to Sephora in Orland Square Mall about a woman held for retail theft. Store security said the woman, Reyes, was seen taking a makeup kit from a display and placing it in a large bag she was carrying, according to the report. She then took a smaller item to the cash register and paid for it, but didn’t pay for the makeup kit before leaving the store, police said.

Police also found three Eddie Bauer women’s parkas in her bag, worth $199 each, according to the report.

Reyes told police she had never been in trouble before and would pay for the items if it meant she could leave, police said.

The makeup kit is worth $89. The total value of all the unpaid items is $686, according to the report.
