CUMMING, Ga. — A woman was seen going in and out of an electronics stockroom with iPads and left the store without paying for them, according to a Forsyth County Sheriff’s incident report.

An employee working in the security office of Target, 2625 Peachtree Parkway, told deputies he recorded the Feb. 15 incident on video surveillance and said the value of stolen items is about $45,000.

At about 8:30 p.m., a black Dodge Challenger pulled into the parking lot and parked close to the front of the store.

A woman dressed in a red shirt and khaki pants got out and walked inside. She was also wearing a hat, gloves and a scarf that wrapped around her face.

She pushed a cart into the electronics section and stood in an aisle for a few minutes. Then, she walked over to the stockroom and went inside. She was seen placing the items into duffel bags that she had put inside the shopping cart.

After filling the bags, she left the store and took off in the Challenger.

About five minutes later, what appeared to be the same car was spotted in the parking lot. What is believed to be the same woman took a shopping cart and repeated the same crime.
