Cops: Three shoplifters caught at Mall in Wellington using anti detection bags

WELLINGTON, Fl. - Two women and one man are in custody after they were arrested on shoplifting charges at the Mall at Wellington Green Wednesday.

Palm Beach County Sheriff's deputies say that Maria Mendoza, Mayelin Saez and Carmelo Irizarry, all from Miami-Dade County, were caught stealing from Abercrombie & Fitch.

Investigators say that the group had $408 worth of merchandise inside foil-lined bags. Deputies says the bags allowed the three to pass point of sales locations without being detected.

Store security noticed the bags and contacted PBSO.

Mendoza, Raez and Irzarry were all arrested and charged with grand theft, resisting arrest without violence and possession of anti-shoplifting devices.

The three were booked into the Palm Beach County Jail.
