Salisbury Police received a call early Monday morning at the Pop Shoppe, 1015 East Innes St. about a larceny in progress. The clerk caught Morrow allegedly stealing a bottle of Febreze, said police spokesman Lt. Lee Walker.

She remains in the Rowan County Detention Center under a $5,000 secured bond.
