On 3/12/2019 a Loss Prevention Officer from Target, contacted York County 911 and advised that he needed to file a retail theft report from an incident that occurred on 3/11/2019. An Officer from the West Manchester Township Police Department met with the LPO at the store.
The LPO said that on 3/11/2019 at approximately 1815 hrs he noticed a white male exit the store pushing a shopping cart which contained a large amount of merchandise. The LPO reportedly noticed that none of the merchandise had been bagged by a cashier although some of it was small enough to be contained inside of a Target bag. He said that he followed the male into the parking lot where he was able to obtain the registration plate from the white van that the male was loading with merchandise.
The LPO said that he then reviewed video surveillance to track the movements of the two suspects inside of the store. The LPO told me that on 3/11/2019 at approximately 1743 hrs a white male and white female entered the store. The two subjects split up after the male selected a shopping cart. The female could be seen on video entering the cookware aisle with the empty shopping cart but emerging from the aisle with a cookware set now in the cart. The female suspect then enters the diaper aisle and emerges with two boxes of diapers in the shopping cart. Male suspect is seen on video selecting a baby monitor and removing the anti-theft device. The two suspects then meet at the same part of the store where the male suspect can be seen placing the baby monitor into the shopping cart. At this time the male suspect takes control of the shopping cart, proceeds to select an air fryer and place it into the cart. The LPO stated that at this point he could also see a vacuum cleaner now in the shopping cart. The male then proceeded to walk past all points of sale, while pushing the shopping cart containing the aforementioned merchandise, without making any attempt to pay for said merchandise. The male suspect exits the store with the shopping cart and merchandise at approximately 1815 hours. The female suspect then exits the store at approximately 1816 hours.
The LPO stated that the total value of the merchandise is $619.94 and the merchandise was not recovered.
Upon investigation the Officer was able to identify and interview the vehicle owner. This led to the identities of the suspects, Christina Little and Jeremy Heiss. Both subjects were questioned and admitted to committing the retail theft.
Christina Little was charged with 1 count of Misdemeanor 1 Retail Theft and 1 count of Misdemeanor Criminal Conspiracy to commit Retail Theft.
