Police say officers detained Cody R. Christenson, 31, 214 E. 15th St., Jasper, and Paige M. Boeckman, 26, 2625 Leaf Drive, Ferdinand, as they were exiting the store with unpaid merchandise.
It was alleged items were moved from their packaging and placed in Boeckman’s purse. The items, including DVD players, a gaming headset, slippers and a GPS unit, had a total value of $576.94.
