Police arrest two at Hecht's store

Police arrested a Laurel woman and a Baltimore man on shoplifting charges in separate incidents Saturday at the Hecht's store in Marley Station.

Anne Celia Butler, 46, of the 10200 block of Deerfield Run was charged with felony theft in the first incident and Charles Moses Millard, 40, of the 5200 block of Saybrook Road was charged with felony theft in the second incident.

Hecht's security guard Sasan Sattari called police to the store shortly after 6 p.m.

Sattari told police he saw a woman take six Coach bags, together valued at more than $1,200, and conceal them in another bag, police said.

Sattari again called police to the store about 9: 30 p.m.

Sattari said two men took shirts from a store display and concealed the merchandise. Both then left the store without paying.

Sattari followed them as they ran to a blue Ford parked near the door, police said. One of the men threw his bag into the car and jumped in on the passenger's side. The other man threw his bag in the car and ran away, police said.

The man who ran was arrested and would not give police his friend's name, police said.
