The Paso Robles Police Department is asking the public to help identify a woman who was caught on camera while allegedly shoplifting at a department store.

Police say the woman is suspected of stealing from Kohls on Tuesday. The store is located in the plaza at 100 Niblick Road.

Officials did not disclose what the woman is suspected of stealing. Surveillance footage shows her holding a bag inside the store.

Investigators are asking that anyone who has information about the suspect call the police department at 805-237-6464.

Seriously? This is newsworthy? Dam. Give me a break!

I think it’s a great idea to expose thieves at play but it looks like she may be swallowing coat hanger? With a little software enhancement, the camera network can call for the question during the event. We have dumb cameras everywhere but soon they will be smart cameras and the public will not need to be bothered, just behave.

The Paso Robles Police Department need to stop hassling the public for assistance in solving petty and unsubstantiated crimes. That is your job, not ours.

If you are reading this, consider that your photo could be posted like this next. All it takes is for minimum wage security staff to have a suspicion, apparently.

If I didn’t know any better, I’d say you sound like one of those curmudgeonly cynical intolerant public defenders.

Please explain to us just how posting a suspect photo is hassling the public? And if this person was captured on video stealing your grannies FedExed hope chest off your front porch, wouldn’t you want the public to know what the thief looked like? Sheesh….

C’mon, when we take thieves off the street, we’re ALL safer. if YOU had something stolen and there was footage, you’d be screaming for it’s release.

How is that candy cane? Its a jolly Christmas forher this year!
