July 02, 1996|By TaNoah Morgan | TaNoah Morgan,SUN STAFF

An Annapolis woman who was stopped by a security guard after she walked out of one Annapolis Mall store with $231 worth of children's clothing Friday was arrested the next day on charges of shoplifting from a different store, county police said yesterday.

Victoria Delores Thomas, 29, of the first block of Pleasant St. in Annapolis was charged with felony theft. She was being held at the Anne Arundel County Detention Center on $4,500 bond.

Montgomery Ward security guard Mike Huber told police he saw a pregnant woman in the store shortly before 11 a.m. Friday, running through the children's department, stuffing clothing into a supermarket bag. When she walked out of the store, Huber stopped her, but she complained of abdominal pains, police said.

She was taken by ambulance to the Anne Arundel Medical Center, and the store was expected to file charges against her at the district court commissioner's office.

The next day, Hecht Co. security guard Dave Rogers told police he saw a pregnant woman take two pairs of shorts, two shirts, a jumper and a skirt from the store displays and put them in her pants about 8: 30 p.m.

She walked out of the store without paying, and Rogers stopped her and held her for police.
