A drug store employee filed an online theft report. She said that a woman entered the store with a large, empty tote bag. She grabbed a cart and headed for the makeup section. She put makeup items in her cart and went to the counter like she was going to pay for the items. She tried to distract the employee by telling her that she needed an item from the shelf behind the employee. The employee told her that she would get the item after she rang up the other merchandise. The woman began yelling obscenities at the employee. She grabbed approximately $165 worth of merchandise and fled to a waiting vehicle, which did not have license plates.

200 blk Garfield St S, Parkland
A deputy was dispatched to a burglary that had occurred overnight at a cell phone retailer. When the deputy arrived, a manger told her that when he arrived for work, he saw drywall debris on the floor near the back office. When he opened the office door, he saw a large hole near the ceiling with a ladder next to it. He said a suspect rummaged through the office, but nothing appeared to be missing. It appears that the suspect broke into the vacant suite next door and then created the hole to get into the cell phone store.
