Posted by dnelson651 on December 15, 2010

A woman was allegedly caught trying to steal a couple of magazines and three Christmas themed DVDs at the Dominick’s in Rogers Park, according to Fox News Chicago.

The  38-year-old woman was inside the Dominick’s at 1763 W. Howard St. when a security officer saw her allegedly place items in her purse and walk out without paying, according to a police report.

The woman was detained by the security officer who recovered three DVDs — Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer, Frosty the Snowman and The Santa Clause – and two magazines, Time and Life, from the woman.

Police were called to the scene and the woman was placed under arrested at 8:41 p.m. and charged with felony retail theft about an hour and a half later.

When officers asked her why, the woman allegedly said: “I don’t know. I just, I just got an itch,’’ according to the report.

She has been arrested twice before for retail theft and has one conviction, according to the report, which said the total value of the items was $58.87.

Belmont Area detectives are investigating.
