Three Salisbury residents were arrested on Friday after police said they fled from a Kohl’s store after stealing nearly $300 in merchandise.
According to a Salisbury Police report, 17-year-olds Tilesha Lee and Laquan Davis, along with 20-year-old Ashia Toomer were charged after officers caught up with them in a nearby hotel parking lot.
Police were notified of the larceny after Kohl’s loss prevention employees said they watched Davis and Lee leave with more than $300 in stolen merchandise.
When loss prevention officers told the accused thieves to stop, the three got into a green Chrysler Sebring and left the 1001 Klumac Road parking lot.
Officers located the vehicle in the parking lot of a nearby Klumac Road hotel and questioned Lee and Toomer.
The report said police found Lee and Toomer each had a pair of metallic knuckles.
The two females were then arrested and charged with felony larceny and misdemeanor carrying concealed weapons.
As officers were taking the two into custody, they saw Davis hiding between two vehicles in the parking lot.
He was arrested and charged with felony larceny.
Lee and Toomer were both given $500 bonds. Davis was given a $2,000 bond.
All three were released after posting bond.
