Another woman was arrested Wednesday after Salisbury Police say she received nearly $800 in merchandise refunds from Kohl’s without ever making a purchase.
A Salisbury Police report said Felecia Sylvia Cureton returned to Kohl’s, 1395 Klumac Road, three times, taking bed settings, clothes and video games to customer service for a refund.
The 21-year-old Salisbury woman came in on Monday, took items from the shelves and walked to customer service, the report said. She was refunded $133.33.
On Tuesday, authorities say, Cureton, of 615 E. Bank St., returned and asked for refunds of $541.79. She tried again on Wednesday, returning two video games for $57.76.
Salisbury Police said the woman was flagged by Kohl’s security because of the amount she was returning. After reviewing security tapes, authorities arrested Cureton.
Salisbury Police arrested 47-year-old Kenneth Michael Kirkman on Tuesday after police reported that he returned bed settings at the same Kohl’s location.
Cureton was charged with one count of felony obtaining property by false pretenses. She was given a $300 bond and was released after posting bond.
